Report for the European Committee of Social Rights

Belgium is one of the last Western European states not to have an explicit ban on corporal punishment. The lack of legislation prohibiting corporal punishment is contrary to the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and Belgium's international obligations.

In cooperation with the Kinderrechtencommissariaat and the Délégué Général aux Droits de l'Enfant, we submitted a report to the European Committee of Social Rights.
