Global report 2017
Ending Violence in Childhood documents the scale of violence experienced by millions of the world’s children in their everyday lives and relationships, in their homes, schools and communities. It presents the latest evidence on the causes and consequences of violence in childhood, and demonstrates how such violence can be prevented.
The Report has been produced by the Know Violence in Childhood initiative, which brought together researchers and experts from around the world to investigate a sensitive and difficult subject that for too long has remained hidden or taboo.
Violence in childhood can be ended, through concerted efforts and collective action.
If we are to build more peaceful societies, we must start with our children.
