On October 11 the United Nation's Secretary-General received and released to the public the UN Secretary- General's Study on Violence Against Children. The study reports on and makes recommendations concerning violence and abuse directed at children around the world.
The report calls for immediate attention to the pervasive harm that children are subjected to in their homes, in workplaces, in schools and institutions, and in the community. It specifically asks that countries address legal issues, such as the death penalty, and social issues, such as the belief that children can and should be subjected to corporal punishment.
