Gemeenten en de aanpak van kindermishandeling vanaf 2015

Publication date: 12/2014
Author: De ArgumentenFabriek
Series: Reports No 3

From January 2015, youth care in the Netherlands will become the responsibility of municipalities - including prevention of violence against children and care of children who have suffered from child abuse. Around 118,000 children fall victim to child abuse in the Netherlands every year, and the effectiveness of municipal policies and professional care have a huge impact on their lives and future.

Together with 20 experts from youth care, the police and municipalities, the Bernard van Leer Foundation has developed this publication to set out who does what from 2015, the three biggest changes for municipalities and bottlenecks around the prevention of child abuse. It explains why prevention of child abuse should not be seen as a linear process (from prevention to after care) but as a cycle (signal, discuss, research, decide and act).

XTR: Jong geleerd

Publication date: 09/2014
Author: Various
Series: Reports No 2

This is the publication ‘Jong geleerd’ (taught early), a 20-page supplement of the Dutch newspaper NRC weekend, about the importance of investing in the early years. The supplement is an initiative of the Bernard van Leer Foundation. Scientific research proves that investing in the development of young children is of great importance; for individuals, but also for our economy and society. However, the attention for the importance and impact of early learning is still very limited in the Netherlands. We hope that this supplement can be of influence in changing this. Sharing knowledge on this topic and increasing opportunities for young children is one of the key objectives of the Bernard van Leer Foundation.

Infancia e violencia: Cotidiano de crianças pequenas em favelas e cortiços de São Paulo

Publication date: 09/2014
Author: Centro de Análises Econômicas e Sociais, Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul
Series: Research Reports No 18

(NB: In Portuguese). A multidisciplinary team analysed the experience of hundreds of children aged 0 to 8 with violence at home, in the streets and at school in five favelas of São Paulo and a community of Guarulhos. The research involved interviews, questionnaires and group discussions with children, adolescents and adults. The data was collected between September 2013 and February 2014. For each favela where the study was conducted a separate research report is available on: www.pucrs.br/caes.

Among the results: although some indicators of violence witnessed in the streets of the areas surveyed are lower than those observed in Recife and Rio de Janeiro, where the same survey was conducted, the rates of physical violence against children at home are extremely high.

By exploring the commonalities and differences in how violence affects children in each community, the research is intended to inform the development of more precise strategies by public, private and nongovernmental organisations.

Research on domestic violence against children aged 0-8 years in Turkey

Publication date: 05/2014
Author: Boğaziçi University, Humanist Bureau and Frekans Research
Series: Research Reports No 19

In 2013, the Bernard van Leer Foundation supported Boğaziçi University, Humanist Bureau and Frekans Research to conduct a national scale survey on domestic violence against children aged 0-8 years in Turkey. The main objective of the survey is to obtain concrete data on the prevalence of domestic violence against children, the forms it takes, and particularly circumstances that lead to the use of violence. The target group of the survey consists of adults who are primarily responsible for the care of children between the ages of 0-8. 

Among the results: In response to their children’s annoying behaviour, 74% of parents state resorting to emotional violence while 23% use physical violence. Parents say they resort to emotional violence because they think it works and to physical violence due to a lack of control of their temper. The results also show that the better the economic status of the family is, the less the children face and witness neglect and emotional/physical violence. The difference is particularly striking in the case of families that are unable to provide for their basic needs.

With the outcomes of this evidence-based study, different stakeholders in Turkey working on this issue will be provided a baseline analysis, and a common platform for developing methods of intervention will be created by disseminating the findings of the study to public institutions, NGOs, academia and the media.
