The impact of humanitarian emergencies on the prevalence of violence against children

Taylor & Francis Online 9 January 2017

Little is known about the patterns and mechanisms by which humanitarian emergencies may exacerbate violence against children. In this article, we propose using the ecological framework to examine the impact of humanitarian emergencies on interpersonal violence against children. We consider the literature that supports this framework and suggest future directions for research to fill identified gaps in the framework. The relationship between humanitarian emergencies and violence against children depends on risk factors at multiple levels, including a breakdown of child protection systems, displacement, threats to livelihoods, changing gender roles, changing household composition, overcrowded living conditions, early marriage, exposure to conflict or other emergency events, and alcohol abuse. The empirical evidence supporting the proposed emergency/violence framework is limited by cross-sectional study designs and a propensity to predominantly examine individual-level determinants of violence, especially exposure to conflict or emergency events. Thus, there is a pressing need to contextualize the relationship between conflict or emergency events and violence against children within the wider ecological and household dynamics that occur during humanitarian emergencies. Ultimately, this will require longitudinal observations of children, families and communities from before the emergency through recovery and improvements to ongoing global surveillance systems. More complete data will enable the humanitarian community to design effective, appropriate and well-targeted interventions.

NRNs in rebuilding

Republica 13 June 2016

The earthquake had a debilitating impact on education with over 24,000 damaged classrooms, leaving hundreds of thousands of children out of school. While there were some immediate responses from humanitarian agencies, the government response to rebuilding safe classrooms has been slow and inadequate. In addition to the imminent need to rebuild durable earthquake-proof schools, there is also a physical task of seismic retrofitting in all schools across the country. What if the earthquake last year had occurred during school hours? It is crucial that the education system is reconstructed with strong component of disaster risk reduction and preparedness for future disasters. - See more at: http://www.myrepublica.com/opinion/story/44228/nrns-in-rebuilding.html#sthash.M8RT6YO6.dpuf

An Earthquake in Education Funding

Project Syndicate 5 May 2016

In mid-April, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador, killing at least 500 people and injuring another 4,000. The immediate priority is relief and rescue – searching for survivors (100 people are still missing), reuniting loved ones, and providing care, water, shelter, and food. But once this is accomplished, the work will have to continue.In particular, some 150,000 young people, according to UNICEF estimates, will have to be provided with psycho social support, and a sense of normalcy, protection, and hope. And the best way to do that is through the rapid provision of education.
