We are pleased to announce the launch of a special issue of the Journal of Psychology, Health and Medicine, featuring 15 papers commissioned by Know Violence in Childhood: A Global Learning Initiative. You can access the journal articles here: http://www.knowviolenceinchildhood.org/publication/journal

The papers are written by leading researchers from diverse disciplines and countries. They address a range of issues that point to the complexity of violence experienced by children across the world – as well as evidence of strategies that are beginning to demonstrate effective ways to prevent violence. They make a strong case for policies and investments that can end violence in childhood. This is necessary to protect the human rights of children and greatly increase their potential to enjoy childhood and enhance their capabilities.
