Measuring Freedom from Violence

Following the adoption by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child of General Comment No. 13 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child on the right of the child to freedom from all forms of violence, World Vision International created this workbook to facilitate the understanding and participation of children to be advocates for the right to protection from violence. The goal of this workbook is not to provide a replication of General Comment No. 13 in child-friendly language, but to be an interactive tool through which children can be guided in their discussions prior to embarking on advocacy initiatives. The workbook is intended for global use, and it is expected that users will translate the workbook and its accompanying materials into relevant languages as appropriate for each context.
