Newsletter: April 2016

If you are reading this newsletter, chances are that you have a birth certificate.  That little piece of paper seems so basic and, frankly, forgettable, but as Santi Kusumaningrum, the co-director of the Center on Child Protection at the University of Indonesia (PUSKAPA), has powerfully demonstrated with her research team, the lack of birth certificates for 24 million Indonesian children can have devastating impacts on their lives.  You can read more about PUSKAPA's pioneering work and the solutions being proposed, including a recent article in The Lancet Global Health, below. You'll also learn about a CPC Learning Network innovation from Burkina ...Read More

April 29, 2016 Webinar: What is the potential for interventions designed to prevent violence against women to reduce children’s exposure to violence? Findings from the SASA! study, Kampala Uganda

Dr. Nambusi Kyegombe presented on her research exploring the co-occurrence of Intimate partner violence (IPV) and child maltreatment in households on Friday, April 29, at 10am EDT. This session explored the extent to which interventions to prevent violence against women may impact children's exposure to violence. It discussed findings from a multi-component evaluation of SASA! - a community mobilisation intervention designed to prevent violence against women and reduce HIV risk behaviours in Kampala, Uganda. The findings suggest that interventions to prevent IPV may also impact on children's exposure to violence, and improve parent-child relationships. They also point to potential synergies for violence prevention, ...Read More

April 26, 2016 Webinar: Attacks on Education

CPC Learning Network Founding Director, Dr. Neil Boothby, and CPC Senior Research Associate, Cyril Bennouna, hosted a webinar on monitoring attacks on education in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Somalia on Tuesday, April 26, at 8am EDT. Despite armed attacks on education affecting students and school personnel around the world, there are no validated, streamlined, and pragmatic methods available for monitoring attacks on education. However, findings from the DRC and Somalia suggest that semi structured interviews with key informants using a short recall period, and then confirming a subsample of the reports, constitutes a feasible, reliable, and relatively sensitive method for monitoring ...Read More

Violence Against Children in a Humanitarian Settings: A Literature Review of Population-Based Approaches

Lindsay Stark and Debbie Landis conducted a review of 22 prevalence studies of violence against children in humanitarian contexts to examine population-based approaches measuring violence against children. Ultimately, the body of evidence in this review reveals a lack of standard practice in measuring violence against children in emergencies; shows limited evidence of whether and under what conditions violence against children increases; and reveals that fundamental assumptions underpinning violence against children in emergencies are not data-driven. The development of standardized approaches to more rigorously measure violence against children is urgently needed in order to understand trends of violence against children in humanitarian contexts and ...Read More

Monitoring and Reporting Attacks on Education

In 2011, Neil Boothby was asked by the Education Above All Foundation to prepare a Global Monitoring System Feasibility Study in relation to attacks on education in times of insecurity and conflict.  This study recommended a continuation of the broad collection of data through the Education under Attack series of publications, together with in-depth studies of attacks and responses in selected countries facing this problem.  Research is now underway in the DRC and Somalia to examine various methodologies used to monitor attacks on education in these conflict affected countries, measures to protect schools and their personnel, and ways to increase ...Read More
