Definition Series

As part of the 2019 revision of the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS), the Alliance developed this definition series to explore core terms and concepts related to child protection in humanitarian settings. The resources include: 

Community Based Child Protection in Humanitarian Action: Definitions and Terminology 
This resource, which provides a list of common Community Based Child Protection (CBCP)-related terms and their definitions, is intended to show the evolving definitions around CBCP.

Discussion Paper: Review of Existing Definitions and Explanations of Abuse, Neglect, Exploitation and Violence against Children
This report examines the main elements of child abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence (nature of the act; perpetrator's relationship to the child; motivation or intent; and outcomes) in ways that recognise the overlap and highlight the distinctions between each type of maltreatment. 

Desk Review on Child Wellbeing in Humanitarian Action: Concepts, Definitions, and Domains
This desk review represents the first step in a larger process to develop an overarching definition of child wellbeing that can be adapted according to context and used to define strategic objectives within humanitarian response.
