No child should have to worry that they’ll be abused in their own home or attacked on their way to school. Yet right now, violence is leaving millions of children scared and in danger. From babies to teenagers, children are being beaten, raped, and even murdered.

It’s time for something bold and visionary. This NYU Center on International Cooperation report, in partnership with Unicef UK, makes the case for the UK Government to play a leading role in a new global partnership to end violence against children, bringing together countries from around the world to keep every child safe.

This global partnership can set out ambitious plans, unlock vital resources, and take action to keep children safe from violence. This would help demonstrate to the world that ending violence against children is possible, encouraging even more countries to join the fight to protect children in danger.
