This Learning Group has drawn on reliable data available across both high income and low and middle income countries, to unpack the prevalence of and risk factors associated with violence against children in schools. The work of the Learning Group has been informed by a number of observations and research findings highlighted in recent international research, as well as recent reports produced by the Special Representative of the Secretary General on Violence Against Children (Tackling Violence in Schools: A Global Problem - Bridging the gap between standards and practice); and organisations like UNICEF (Hidden in Plain Sight: A Statistical Analysis of Violence Against Children).

Six papers have been produced under this Learning Group. The papers are listed below:
