Preventing Serious Violations of Children’s Rights: Evidence from India
April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Globally, there is growing interest in identifying effective strategies that prevent child rights violations like violence, child labor, early marriage and school dropout; intervening before, not after harm happens. This WIP will present findings from two empirical studies of community-based harm prevention approaches to child protection in India. Discussion will touch on the methodological challenges of studying prevention; the lessons on prevention that child protection experts can draw from public health, disaster resilience and access to justice; and practical takeaways for child protection practitioners.
