Welcome to the latest Innocenti e-newsletter. We are pleased to highlight a number of new publications building the evidence base on interventions around child protection and protection against violence. Our work on adolescence – including on their risk of exposure to violence, on adolescent parenting programmes, and on processes of gender socialization -- highlights the need to look at interventions intersectorally and across the life course of children, as well as considering how and when interventions travel across contexts. During this quarter we brought UNICEF’s 70th Anniversary Exhibition to Florence, contributing to the commemoration of six centuries of civic care for children in the Museum of the Ospedale degli Innocenti. We are also happy to share our new Innocenti 2016 Results Report which provides more detail on work carried out with many partners over the previous year.
