In 2016, the Marist Foundation for International Solidarity (FMSI), an NGO of the Marist Institute, signed an agreement of collaboration with the Inter-American Children’s Institute (IIN). Within this framework, it was decided that it was necessary to develop research on the initiatives to eradicate violence against children in the Americas, with the collaboration of the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR).
The final report on this research process, based on the analysis of programmes developed in different countries of the Americas, was presented recently.
The proposed research has defined as criteria the scope of the programmes in the different countries of the Americas, covering three regions: North America, Central America and South America. For empirical research in the region, Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala and Chile were considered.
