"This report builds upon a number of important studies and initiatives, including a number of reports produced by the Office of the SRSG on prevention of and responses to violence against children. The present report seeks to contribute to the dissemination and implementation of the Model Strategies on VAC, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2014. It also aims to support the implementation of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which calls for an end to all forms of violence against children, for equal access to justice for all, and for effective, accountable and inclusive institutions. Moreover, in focusing on the important but often overlooked issue of girls in the criminal justice system, this report represents a resource for the high-level Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty, called for by the UN General Assembly in December 2014."-- p. 2.
