Shockingly there are still at least 40 countries which sentence children to death, life imprisonment and/or corporal punishment, including whipping, flogging, caning or amputation.
Such horrific human rights abuses against children, committed in the name of 'justice', cannot continue. CRIN is committed to ending inhuman sentencing of children because these cruel practices are an affront to what it means to treat all people with dignity, respect and equality. No one should have to suffer such horrendous violations of their basic human rights.
This kit is intended to provide advocacy ideas to organisations or individuals in States which are still subjecting children to inhuman sentencing. For more information visit our end inhuman sentencing of childen campaign page.
