This popular leaflet summarises progress towards universal prohibition of corporal punishment, listing on the one hand the states which have now prohibited all corporal punishment and those where governments are committed to law reform, and on the other the states where corporal punishment is not fully prohibited in any setting and those where caning, flogging and/or whipping is still lawful as a criminal sentence for juveniles. With a host of other facts, figures and graphics, the leaflet is proving to be an invaluable tool in advocating for this most fundamental law reform.
