STUDY ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN

The study is an activity of the “Prevention of Domestic Violence against Children Project” implemented within the framework of the “Program on Promoting Dialogue among Non-Governmental Organisations” carried out in partnership with the International Children’s Center Association and the Children of Our Future Foundation, and co- nanced by the European Union and the Central Finance and Contracts Unit.

Aim of the Study:

Focusing solely at the domestic environment, the study aims to make visible children’s experiences of domestic violence and to share their suggestions on the prevention of violence.

Within the scope of the project, 440 children at the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade of elementary schools across Istanbul were reached out so as to examine domestic violence against children and learn about children’s suggestions concerning the prevention of violence.
