Swiss United Nations Expert says publicly Switzerland is a problem to children !

Philip Jaffé, the Swiss specialised pedopsychiatrist heading the Geneva University Rights of the Child division, seats as an independent expert in the monitoring body of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. He notified publicly Switzerland is structurally problematic for children:

(Switzerland) has shortcomings linked to societal choices. Take poverty, for example. As a Swiss citizen, I am very upset to know that children — around 250,000 — suffer from poverty here. That is absolute nonsense.

Children in Switzerland — 18% of the population — are also abused at alarming rates. Every year, one in five girls and one in ten boys are sexually abused. Tens of thousands of children are physically abused, some to death. Switzerland is also one of the last countries in Europe to tolerate corporal punishment.

To confront this, Switzerland is hampered by its federalism. The cantons are all-powerful. There is no specific national body dedicated to the protection of children and their rights. This causes disparities between the cantons.

I rest my case?
