HRC session 117 (2016)

(10 August 2016, CCPR/C/ARG/CO/5, Concluding observations on fifth report, paras. 15 and 16)

It should also promote non-violent forms of discipline as alternatives to corporal punishment and conduct public information campaigns in order to raise awareness among the general public of the prohibition and harmful effects of corporal punishment.”
