Ending Violence Against Children

Six Strategies for Action

UNICEF’s understanding of violence derives from Article 19 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), which defines the scope as “all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.”

The scope of this review includes interventions that address interpersonal violence (emotional, physical and sexual) against children at home, school, work, the community at large and social spaces created by mobile and online technology. The report does not address violence that occurs in the context of natural disasters or armed conflict. Violence in these contexts is specific to humanitarian action and is addressed in other reports. That said, many of the approaches described here apply in humanitarian situations.

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
