NOT HERE Presents:  The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking

November 12 & 13, 2015

Countdown to the Summit: 80 Days Remaining


Today’s Featured Resource: Ending Violence Against Children

Because violence against children is a systemic problem, it requires systemic solutions – solutions best addressed by key stakeholders in positions of power including government officials, policy makers, and funders. The time to act is now.


UNICEF has identified the following six key strategies based on both their experience, and study of effective and ineffective efforts in responding to violence against children:
  1. Supporting parents, caregivers and families 
  2. Helping children and adolescents manage risks and challenges 
  3. Changing attitudes and social norms that encourage violence and discrimination
  4. Promoting and providing support services for children
  5. Implementing laws and policies that protect children
  6. Carrying out data collection and research

Ending Violence Against Children: Six Strategies for Action 

The report explains why each of these six strategies is so impactful and goes even further to provide global case study examples of each strategy in action, with links to valuable resources to study further.
