Highlights

Violence affecting children (VAC) manifests differently in every society.

Violent acts are not merely an interaction between a child and one or more individuals, but rather a much more complex social phenomenon.

Harmful acts and practices that endanger children’s survival, undermine their well-being, and prevent their development are the consequence of numerous determinants and factors.

These factors come from multiple levels — individual characteristics, interpersonal relationships, and the communities in which people live — and constantly interact with institutional and structural drivers, which are closely related with the cultural context.
