More than 50% of children in South-East Europe have experienced some form of psychological or physical punishment by family members.

That's according to Dr. Bertrand Desmoulins, a representative of the UN fund for children (UNICEF) in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Furthermore, the prejudices against disabled children in some of these countries are still strong, he notes.

In August, UNICEF and the European Union expanded a partnership to better protect children's rights in South-East Europe.

Alpha Diallo asked Dr. Bertrand Desmoulins about these partnerships.
