Abstract

This paper looks at the pandemic of abuse and violence against children worldwide, and examines the historical and cultural roots of these systemic human violations. It proposes strategies to better safeguard children globally, including education and a legal mechanism to hold government officials – national and local – accountable when they fail to protect children from abuse, enslavement, murder, and other crimes, and all too often profit from them.
