#1 Violence Against Children

This is the first podcast of CPLO, the Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office based in Cape Town, South Africa.

ln light of the ground-breaking 2019 The Constitutional Court of South Africa ruling that the common-law defence of reasonable and moderate parental chastisement was indefensible, we decided convene a panel on violence against children which took place on 28th November 2019.

The speakers were:

Shanaaz Mathews who Directs the Children’s Institute at the University of Cape Town, Carol Bower, a Child Rights Consultant, Divya Naidoo from Save the Children South Africa and Isabel Magaya who works at the Centre for Child Law.
