Register in advance for this webinar:

Rationale, aims and target audience

Violence affects up to 1 in 2 children every year, with devastating acute and long-term consequences. Yet, we know that violence can be prevented, we have the tools to do so, and SDG Target 16.2 calls for ending violence against children.

The INSPIRE: Seven strategies for ending violence against children technical package is a collection of evidence-based recommendations on how to prevent and respond to violence against children, including Implementation and enforcement laws; Norms and values; Safe environments; Parent and caregiver support; Income and economic strengthening; Response and support services; and Education and life skills (see

To assist governments, civil society and faith-based organizations in their efforts to reduce violence against children, the INSPIRE core agencies and INSPIRE Working Group are initiating this series of eight training webinars over the course of six months. The aims are to:

• Introduce INSPIRE to those who need to know and act on it,

• Support those who already work with INSPIRE in their efforts to scale it up, and

• Give all INSPIRE stakeholders an opportunity to get detailed insights into each of the seven strategies and the cross-cutting elements.

The target audience includes policy-makers and legislators, planners and technical staff, practitioners and implementers, faith-based and traditional leaders, civil society organizations, funders, advocates, and any other interested stakeholders.


Following the introductory webinar held in December 2020, this second in the series will present the first INSPIRE strategy "implementation and enforcement of laws" in more depth.

On 19 January 2021 from 15h30-17h00 CET this second webinar will cover:

• Overview of the strategy and brief overview of findings from the Global status report on preventing violence 2020

• Implementation and enforcement of laws reducing access to alcohol and guns

• Global efforts to reach prohibition of corporal punishment in all settings

• Implementation and enforcement of laws to end sexual abuse and exploitation of children

• Q&A session with the experts

Confirmed speakers for the webinar include Anna Giudice (UNODC), Richard Matzopoulos (Medical Research Council of South Africa) and Sonia Vohito (Global Partnership to End Violence against Children). The webinar will be moderated by Stephen Blight (UNICEF).
