Violence Against Children in South Africa: The cost of inaction to society and the economy

This research takes the statistics on violence against children in South Africa and models the cost of inaction. The costing exercise gives  useful economic arguments about all forms of violence against children and more importantly some concrete suggestions for how this should be addressed. The key issues resonate with those engaging on child protection and other related issues beyond South Africa.
