GNRC Participates in the Inter-American Meeting on Corporal Punishment of Children

Corporal punishment is a widespread phenomenon in the region with a direct impact on the physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing of children. Nearly 176 million children and adolescents are affected and in turn, replicate these forms of violence in their daily lives. So far, ten (10) countries in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region prohibit physical and psychological punishment in all contexts, including within families. To further strengthen the response, the Government of Mexico organized the Inter-American Meeting on Corporal Punishment of Children on 25th and 26th April 2018 in Mexico City, to analyze and understand the current situation and the progress made to eliminate corporal punishment of children in the region. The government worked in collaboration with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and other entities such as the Special Representative of the Secretary General on Violence against Children (SRSG-VAC), the Inter-American Children’s Institute (IIN), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the Latin American and Caribbean Network for Children and Adolescents’ Rights (REDLAMYC).
