Measuring violence against children in humanitarian settings: A scoping exercise of methods and tools. Research brief

From May December 2013, the Child Protection in Crisis (CPC) Network and Save the Children UK conducted a scoping exercise in order to examine two child protection issues considered “hard to measure” in Humanitarian settings: sexual violence against children and violence within the household. The goal of this exercise was to identify existing methodologies and tools to assess these issues, as well as to highlight gaps in current approaches and offer recommendations for further action. The study involved a structured review of academic and grey literature, resulting in the identification of 20 methods and tools, including a range of approaches and instruments for measuring violence against children in humanitarian contexts. Each method or tool was also analyzed, according to the humanitarian phase(s) in which they are applicable, as well as whether they involve an active or passive approach to investigation. The final report summarizing this scoping exercise is available here
