Abstract

From May-December 2013, the Child Protection in Crisis (CPC) Network and Save the Children UK conducted a scoping exercise in order to examine two child protection issues considered 'hard to measure' in humanitarian settings: sexual violence against children and violence with the household. The goal of this exercise was to identify existing methodologies and tools to assess these issues, as well as to highlight gaps in current approaches and offer recommendations for further action. The study involved a structured review of academic and rey literature, resulting in the identification of 20 methods and tools, invluding a range of approaches and insturments for measureing violence against children in humanitarian contexts. Each method or tool was also analused according to the humanitarian phase)s_ in which they are appicable, as well whether they involve an active or passive approach to investigation.
