This 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.
