Providing follow-up on the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Study on Violence against Children. Immediate Priorities.

This report is an outcome of the regional workshop on Proceedings of Save the Children and partner organizations on violence against children held in March in Bangkok. The workshop aims to adopt specific directions to follow up on the study’s recommendations in the region. Among the immediate priorities are the need to promote national legal reforms to guarantee that children receive equal protection as adults for their dignity and physical integrity, the necessity to work closely with governments to build more effective child protection systems, and the promotion of key issues to be included in the drafting of the UN Resolution on Children’s Rights to be presented to the UN General Assembly in late 2007.
