Description of call
"Daphne call - Action grants to support transnational projects on the elimination of corporal punishment for children"

The aim of this call is to prevent and combat violence in the form of corporal punishment against children and to protect child victims of such violence. The priority of the call is to contribute to the elimination of corporal punishment of children. This call is addressed to organisations registered in EU Member States that have already enacted a total prohibition on the corporal punishment of children and aims to support prohibition in law with the necessary flanking measures. Projects under this priority must fully engage governments in multi-agency action. Projects must include a qualitative assessment component to measure the impact of project activities with a view to disseminating information on what works more widely in the EU.
