After the UN Study -what next? A discussion paper on possible outcomes of the UN Study on Violence against Children

This paper considers a number of possible outcomes to the UN Study on Violence Against Children at the international level, reviewing calls made by NGOs for a new special mechanism, and reviewing the effect and impact of the UN's treatment of other related thematic human rights issues. This discussion paper is intended to serve as a background document to initiate discussion on possible outcomes early in the process of the UN Study. Outcomes connected with budgetary requirements and issues such as the need to ensure child participation have not been considered in this paper.
