INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR ACTION TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN: Establish a Special Representative to the UN Secretary-General

Violence is a daily reality for millions of children around the world, affecting girls and boys of all ages, all social contexts, and all nationalities. In every part of their lives —their homes and families, schools, institutions, workplaces and communities — children may be beaten, sexually assaulted, tortured, and even killed.
