Following the growing recognition that violence is an all-too common experience in the daily lives of many boys and girls around the world, the UN General Assembly requested the Secretary General in 2002 to conduct an in-depth global study on this issue.
The participation of children is crucial to the quality and credibility of the UN Global Study on Violence Against Children. Children’s involvement must be at the very heart of the Study if it is to better understand the extent and nature of violence against children and to help design more effective responses that provide children with improved protection against such violence.
