Some see child protection systems as “a set of inter-linked components”, whereas others see child protection systems more narrowly as a “set of steps for handling individual cases”. The discussion on child protection systems is in its early stages, and interagency agreement of key concepts and terminology has yet to be established. So, while it is too early for a definitive guide, this Save the Children’s “Rough Guide to Child Protection” aims to provide an introduction to child protection systems. The document outlines the importance of a coherent, government-led child protection system, with a checklist of questions for each area of focus.
