Five Years On

A global update on violence against children

This report summarizes the state of violence against children in the five years since the release of the UN Study on Violence against Children in 2006. It is neither comprehensive nor exhaustive, but it is illustrative of the continued pervasiveness of violence in children’s lives.

The report is a result of a 2001 UN General Assembly request.  The GA acted on the recommendation of the Committee on the Rights of the Child, and asked the UN Secretary-General to undertake an in-depth study on violence against children.
