International Conference on Corporal Punishment
May 3 - May 4
To better protect children in Switzerland, should all corporal punishment be banned? This is the question that will be explored at the 9th International Conference in Bern, Switzerland, May 3-4, 2018. Held at Inselspital (University Hospital of Bern), the conference will bring together a cross-section of professionals including politicians, lawyers, doctors, social workers, and others who work in child protection to discuss current legislation, analyze the attitudes toward and effects of corporal punishment, ways to reduce its use, and come up with policy recommendations going forward. The conference will be simultaneously translated into French, German, and English. Registration forms can be found on the University of Geneva website.
