Global Initiative e-newsletter issue 30 (March 2015)

Two more states – Andorra and Benin – have achieved full prohibition of corporal punishment of children since the last Global Initiative newsletter in December 2014, bringing the total number of states to 46 (seven in Africa, 28 in Europe). In this newsletter, the Global Initiative reports on these developments and more, including a European ruling compelling France to prohibit all corporal punishment, progress towards prohibition in four countries and new advocacy resources from the Global Initiative.

The newsletter is sent automatically to supporters of the Global Initiative and others who have expressed an interest. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact
