Extract from Preface (p. x): “The important purpose of this Handbook is to encourage sensitive and ethical research on punishment of children, wherever possible directly involving children themselves. It provides an invaluable and practical resource kit for both programme managers and researchers. The aim is to reveal children’s experiences and their views. The imperative for prohibiting and eliminating all corporal punishment and other humiliating treatment of children is human rights. The human rights standards are clear, but persuading states to honour their obligations and take the necessary actions – law reform, awareness-raising and public education – is not easy.”
