Human Rights Committee: Burundi

HRC session 112 (2014)

(21 November 2014, CCPR/C/BDI/CO/2, Concluding observations on second report, para. 15)

"The Committee notes with concern that corporal punishment is still used in some schools and in the family (arts. 7 and 24).

 The State party should take practical steps, including legislative measures where appropriate, to put an end to corporal punishment in all settings. It should encourage the use of non-violent forms of discipline instead of corporal punishment and should conduct public information campaigns to raise awareness about its harmful effects."
