|Samenvatting||In autumn this 2006, the UN Secretary General’s Study on Violence Against Children will present its findings to the UN General Assembly. The study is the second to be conducted at the request of the Committee on the Rights of the Child, exercising a power granted by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The first study, in 1996, dealt with the effects of armed conflict on children. Jaap Doek has been the Chairperson of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child since 2001. |
A law professor and judge, he was instrumental in founding the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN), the African Network for Prevention and Protection of Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN), and Defence for Children International (DCI). Professor Doek attended the nine regional consultations that have been held in the process of putting together the study, and is a member of the study’s editorial board. Here he talks to Early Childhood Matters about the issues at the heart of the study and his hopes for its impact.
