The Shadow Pandemic: Violence Against Children in Europe in times of COVID-19: Day 1
As the world is fighting COVID-19, and countries are actively preparing a sustainable recovery after COVID-19, promoting child rights and implementing measures for the well-being of children is more important than ever.
The objectives of this convening are to:
- Elevate violence against children as a global priority for COVID-19 planning and financing
- Showcase cost-effective, evidence-based solutions that can be scaled
- Discuss a collective way forward for European Pathfinding Countries
Participating countries are those that have already joined the End Violence partnership, with official domestic and international commitments, to ending violence against children. Participants include country delegations (with representation of different sectors including health, education, social welfare, child protection and justice) and European End Violence members.
