This microanalysis is being developed under the project ‘Chapter – Children’s Help Against Physical Threatening and Emotional Repression’, implemented under the Grant Agreement with Reg. No. JUST / 2015 / RDAP / AG / CORP / 9176.
The purpose of the analysis is to investigate the use of “corporal punishment” in the context of understanding it as a form of education/ discipline in childcare and care, and what is the legal basis governing such relationships, and is there a program of care in identifying and empowering children and their parents and authorities to step out of the inertia position of the pattern of violence.
The emphasis on the study is the need to identify the necessary changes both in the normative and practical terms that minimize its use and ensure that children’s rights are respected.
The analysis also constitutes a preliminary study of the attitudes of the societies in Bulgaria, Cyprus and Portugal on the “corporal punishment” of children and in the implementation of the project, the study will be further developed.
