Parliamentarians from Latin America adopt strategies to eliminate violence against children

14 October 2021 at 15h15


Parliamentarians focused on the many actions they can take to prevent and eliminate violence against children, including:

  • Adopting legislation that prohibits all forms of violence against children including corporal punishment in the home, and the promotion of protection measures within the judicial system that prevent the re-victimization of children.
  • Allocating resources to violence prevention and the creation of protective environments for children.
  • Improving monitoring and reporting mechanisms so that laws and budgets for the prevention of violence against children are properly implemented.
  • Working with the media to generate a public discussion on the topic and to disseminate information.
  • Interacting directly with children and enabling their participation in the legislative process.
  • Ensuring that national parliaments participate in the follow-up and implementation of recommendations made by the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the United Nations Secretary-General’s global study on violence against children.
  • Strengthening partnerships with all stakeholders to prevent violence against children, including civil society, international organizations and the private sector.
