Saint Kitts and Nevis

These two Caribbean islands, situated on the hurricane belt, are separated by a two-mile channel. Historically colonies of different imperial powers over the centuries, the islands gained full independence in 1983. The economy has since moved away from relying on the traditional sugar trade and has expanded into other industries. Juvenile justice is still a serious challenge to children’s rights and corporal punishment remains a lawful criminal sentence for children.
