1. Statistical Report on Violence against Children (provisional title)
(The publication will be available on 4 September 2014)

Violence remains an all-too-real part of life for children around the globe, regardless of their economic circumstances, culture, religion or ethnicity. It has immediate and long-term consequences for children and societies. This publication analyses data from 195 countries; it is the largest compilation of statistics on violence against children to date. By examining global patterns of violence against children and exploring attitudes and social norms, it sheds light on an issue that has remained largely undocumented and underreported. To urge collective action to end this pervasive human rights violation, the publication also includes examples of initiatives on preventing and responding to violence against children in several countries.

2. CRC@25 Anniversary Publication
(The publication will be available in mid-September 2014)

Twenty-five years ago, the world expressed its commitment to children through the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In a collection of thought-provoking essays from key opinion leaders, UNICEF shows how the Convention has inspired changes in laws, practices and attitudes that have improved the lives of children. This anniversary publication reports on the progress achieved, shortfalls and remaining challenges to realize the vision and promise of the Convention. It also explores the ways in which the Convention can be strengthened and made fully transformative, particularly for the most disadvantaged children.

3. Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed – Progress Report 2014
(The publication will be available on 16 September 2014)

Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed is a global effort to stop mothers and children from dying of causes that are easily prevented. Launched in 2012 by the Governments of Ethiopia, India and the United States, together with UNICEF, A Promise Renewed is mobilizing governments, civil society and the private sector to fulfil the world’s commitment to accelerate progress on maternal, newborn and child survival. This year’s progress report presents new data and analyses that shows why newborn survival is so critical to the goals of A Promise Renewed and to achieve global progress on MDGs 4 and 5.
