Preventing Violence Against Children in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Settings: a ‘Child Security Index’

Published on


There is an urgent need to better understand the experiences and vulnerabilities of children in fragile and conflict-affected settings. This article proposes the development of a Child Security Index composed of administrative and perception-based metrics. Note: Early Childhood Matters is the journal of the Bernard van Leer Foundation. Aimed at an international audience of practitioners and policymakers, it tackles contemporary themes in early childhood, with contributions from both foundation-supported projects and outside experts drawn from the fields of practice, policy and academia.
