Preventing violence against children

In this short video - produced by the Jacobs Foundation and featured on the Bold Blog - our director, Professor Manuel Eisner talks about the perpetration of violence and victimisation of children. He explains how our research contributes to develop better prevention strategies regionally (at local and national government levels) and globally through the WHO and Unicef. Reducing violence against children is among the development goals promoted by the United Nations.
