Children in danger: Act to end violence against children

United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), (2014)

Every five minutes a child dies as the result of violence, according to a ground-breaking report from Unicef UK. The report reveals that the vast majority of children are killed outside warzones and that physical, sexual and emotional abuse is widespread with millions of children unsafe in their homes, schools and communities. Some 345 children could die from violence each day in the next year, unless governments act. The report also finds that: (1) Children who are victims of violence have brain activity similar to soldiers exposed to combat; (2) A third of children who are victims of violence are likely to develop long-lasting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder; (3) Those living in poverty are more likely to be victims of violence, wherever they live in the world; (4) Over 7% of child deaths due to violence each day are the result of interpersonal violence, rather than conflict.

UNICEF Evaluation Brief No. 2014/2 - Protecting Children in Emergencies: A Comprehensive Evaluation of UNICEF Programmes

United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), (2014)

In December 2013, UNICEF published its first comprehensive evaluation assessing how well its global and country strategies and programmes have worked to protect children in emergencies. The ‘Evaluation of UNICEF Programmes to Protect Children in Emergencies’ was undertaken to identify key successes and gaps in child protection programming over the period 2009-2012 and to draw out lessons learned ahead of the roll-out of the new Strategic Plan, 2014-2017. The evaluation investigates achievements and gaps against the Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action (CCCs), UNICEF’s Child Protection Strategy and the previous Strategic Plan, 2006-2013. It assesses the extent to which interventions in longer term child protection systems-strengthening and preparedness have led to a more effective response in crises.

a post-2015 world fit for children | In this paper, we explore the dynamic and dramatic interplay between the realization of children’s rights and sustainable development. The evidence presented makes a powerful case for why and how these issues must be directly addressed in the discussions towards a Post-2015 Development Agenda and the eventual framework that will emerge. It is a call to action for decision-makers to invest in children’s rights and well-being as an integral means to achieving sustainable development.

Le renforcement des systèmes de protection de l’enfance

Terre des Hommes, (2011)

Ce document propose tout d’abord de comprendre ce qu’est un système de protection de l’enfance et pour quelles raisons Tdh entend « penser système » et se consacrer au renforcement des systèmes de protection (section 1). Il décrit ensuite le modèle d’action de référence de Tdh en matière de renforcement des SPE et présente les principales interventions à mener dans cette perspective, en fonction de différents contextes (section 2). Un cadrage méthodologique et des informations d’ordre pratique viennent illustrer les manières concrètes d’intervenir en ce domaine (section 3). En annexe se trouve une description des actions composant la matrice de base à utiliser en matière de renforcement des SPE. Cette description est complétée par quelques exemples de projets et d’expériences actuellement engagés par Tdh sur le terrain en différents lieux de la planète.

Kids Abroad: ignore them, abuse them or protect them?

Dottridge, M, Eds.: Terre des Hommes, (2008)

Lessons on how to protect children on the move from being exploited | This study focuses on the experience of young people who leave home or travel abroad to seek work or a better life and also on children who are sent away from home by their parents. It explores initiatives which have had the effect of reducing the likelihood that such children will be subjected to economic or sexual exploitation. It sets out to go beyond identifying the vulnerable situations faced by such children, by examining what techniques have proved helpful to children who move away from their families.

Network HPN Paper: The role of education in protecting children in conflict

Susan Nicolai and Carl Triplehorn, Eds.: Humanitarian Practice Network (HPN); Overseas Development Institute (ODI), (2003)

Education in emergencies is a young area; the evidence of its impact is often anecdotal, and although its status as a humanitarian concern has gained legitimacy in recent years, it has yet to be accepted across the humanitarian community. Much more needs to be done to enhance our understanding of the links between education and child protection in emergency situations.

Ending Child Marriage: Child Marriage Laws ad Their Limitations

Wodon, Q., Tavares, P., Fiala, O., Nestour, A. & Wise, L., Eds.: Save the Children and The World Bank, (2017)

Child marriage is defined as a formal or informal union before the age of 18. The practice affects mostly girls. While child marriage is especially prevalent in low and lower-middle income countries, it is also observed in other countries. It endangers the life trajectories of girls in multiple ways. Child brides are at greater risk of experiencing a range of poor health outcomes, having children at younger ages when they are not yet ready to do so, dropping out of school, earning less over their lifetimes and living in poverty compared to their peers who marry at later ages. Child brides may also be more likely to experience intimate partner violence, have restricted physical mobility, and limited decision making ability. M

The Condition of the Girl Child worldwide - Fifth Edition

Indefes - Terre des Hommes, (2016)

In the last five years, i.e. how old turned the Campaign “Indifesa” (Defenceless) in 2016, that was launched by Terre des Hommes in 2012, the world has become smaller. One can actually say that the derangements following the Arab Spring in 2011 reshuffled what is stable and what produces instability; between those, who live in a peaceful world, and those, who try to survive in areas affected by violence. All that significantly reduced the distance between those, who live there, along the Mediterranean cost, and those, who live here. Such deep disorder made even more acute, visible and tangible also for the so called developed world all the serious violations of the human rights suffered by little girls and girls: on the one hand the widespread political instability and violence made even more precarious the little girls and young women’s conditions on the Mediterranean southern coast, where they were already fragile; and on the other hand the migration flows further worsened them, matching at the same time the conditions of those young and very young migrants to those of the European girls of the same age.
