New Caribbean progress briefing

The second issue of the Caribbean Coalition for the Abolition of Corporal Punishment of Children’s briefing which documents progress towards prohibiting corporal punishment of children across the region is now available.

Designed for advocacy use, the briefing highlights the human rights imperative to prohibit all violent punishment of children in all Caribbean states and territories. For each Caribbean state and territory, it summarises the progress made towards prohibition and what remains to be done. Aiming to promote national action for prohibition, it emphasises the many immediate opportunities for working to fulfil children’s right to protection in law from all corporal punishment in the penal system, care settings, schools and the family home.
