This report brings together the key study findings of a review of legislation and policies relating to violence against children in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda, following the successful completion of country studies in 2009. By synthesising these findings we aim to create a regional picture on the current state of legislation and policies on violence against children.

The studies were commissioned by The African Child Policy Forum, (ACPF) a rights based organisation working to promote the rights of children through policy, advocacy, capacity building and knowledge sharing. The studies used both primary and secondary data sources, collecting primary data from experts on children issues in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda. These included people working in government children’s departments, the judiciary and education, as well as local and international NGOs and agencies working on child related issues. The analysis of data is informed by content and thematic approaches, while presentation is both descriptive and analytical.
