Save the children's contribution to end violence against children in work settings

This report provides a brief problem analysis, which is followed by examples of good practice to end violence against children in schools and other educational settings. A series of recommendations from children and from Save the Children are shared, from which five key recommendations are highlighted. This contribution is based on Save the Children’s global submissions to the UN Study on Violence concerning the sexual abuse of girls and boys; physical and humiliating punishment; children in conflict with the law and gender based violence, as well as other relevant studies and expert meeting reports undertaken by Save the Children and their social partners. This contribution also draws significantly upon children's recommendations from the regional consultations undertaken with children and young people to feed into the UN Study (Act Now!), as well as upon other participatory process with girls, boys and children’s own organizations.
