National Study on School Violence in Georgia
The Violence against Children in Schools Study describes the situation of child abuse and neglect in schools and the nearby areas.
The World Report of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children brought to the attention of the whole world the high level of all forms of violence against children. It encouraged each country to undertake further research and analysis on the magnitude of violence against children. The Violence against Children in Schools Study, commissioned by the Ministry of Education and Science (MoES) with UNICEF’s support, is the result of these recommendations. It also compliments and supports the National Study on Violence against Children. Both studies were carried out in collaboration with local governmental and non-governmental sectors and the International Society for Prevention of Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN).
