The ASEAN Guidelines for a Non-Violent Approach to Nurture, Care and Development of Children in All Settings

Subtitle :

Abstract :
The Convention on the Rights of the Child specifies that it is the obligation of State parties to address and eliminate the widespread prevalence and incidence of violence against children (VAC). The UN Special Representative to the Secretary-General on Violence against Children, Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, outlined what has to be done to confront the major challenges of VAC (2006). During 2009 -2015, another UN Special Representative, Marta Santos Pais, also has consistently monitored and highlighted the need to accelerate, preventive and responsive mechanisms to address violence against children worldwide. The ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC), at its July 2011 meeting, identified the elimination of violence against children (EVAC) as one of the priority areas in its 2012-2016 ACWC Work Plan. In 2013, ACWC developed the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women and Violence against Children. Further, in 2014, at the 10th meeting in Myanmar, the ACWC endorsed the proposal to develop an ASEAN Regional Plan of Action on the Elimination of Violence against Children (EVAC). The ASEAN Guidelines for a Non-violent Approach to Nurture, Care and Development of Children in All Settings is one of the projects in the ACWC Work Plan (2012-2016). This Guidelines reflects the serious concern of ASEAN, the expression of commitment of the ACWC and its contribution to the well-being of children in ASEAN.
