This book explores the situation of violence against children (VAC) in the Caribbean context against an international backdrop. It examines the different dimensions of violence (direct, cultural and structural) and involves a sociological exploration of the factors that contribute to the high tolerance of violence that exists in the Caribbean region, with particular attention to Trinidad and Tobago. A deconstruction of the violence concept and its epistemological implications allows for a defining, refining and re-defining of the phenomenon. The research examines the spheres of domestic violence, gender violence, violence against street children, and corporal punishment in great detail. The research adopts a rights-based analysis of the issue of VAC and incorporates an international review; it imports field research from Bangladesh, Canada, Nicaragua, and the Netherlands context to inform the study. It conducts an evaluation of T&T's standing with respect to the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and puts forward sound recommendations for change. The multi-design approach uses qualitative and quantitative data analysis to assess the nation's knowledge, attitudes, perceptions and beliefs (KAPBs) on the issue of VAC. The ultimate aim of the research is for its utilisation by everyone, especially state policy makers, to promote a 'lowering' of the threshold of violence- tolerance, thereby fostering a more child-friendly society. About the author Rona Jualla van Oudenhoven is sociologist, she is attached to ICDI - International Child Development Initiatives - in Leiden, The Netherlands. She is currently involved in social justice advocacy within a North American and international context. She continues to contribute to the debate, policy and practice regarding interventions benefitting vulnerable persons.
