The Multi-Country Study on the Drivers of Violence Affecting Children is an on-going, four-country study in Italy, Peru, Viet Nam and Zimbabwe, led by the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti and its academic partner the University of Edinburgh. The studies have been effective in conclusively proving that violence affecting children is prevalent in all societies; policy makers have begun to shift away from a discourse of denial to a dialogue on how to address violence affecting children.
This briefing provides a cross-country snapshot of current findings in each of the four participating countries. For a more detailed exploration of the findings and related content, visit the project page on the Innocenti website.
