Disputing Discipline. Child Protection, Punishment and Piety in Zanzibar Schools (forthcoming 2021, Rutgers University Press)
A visual and poetic exploration into the lives of Zanzibari children who negotiate the intersections of universalized and local children’s rights aspirations, Disputing Discipline shows how anti-corporal punishment programs in schools unintentionally compromise children’s well-being and asserts that children’s views and experiences can and should transform our understanding of child protection policy.
