Abstract

Violence against children is a global economic, social, human rights, and public health issue that affects millions of children each year. Evidence shows that children experience various forms of violence. This study therefore aims to investigate the impact of childhood exposure to multiple forms of violence on multi-dimensional child well-being in Zambia. Specifically, the study aims to: (1) Establish the forms of violence experienced by children across the life course of childhood. (2) Investigate the patterns of violence perpetrated by children against fellow children. (3) Determine the consequences of childhood violence for children’s well-being across the life course of childhood. (4) Establish how victims cope with the consequences of violence across the life course of childhood. This is a mixed methods approach (quantitative and qualitative methods). Cluster sampling, disproportionate stratified random sampling, purposive and snowball sampling will be used to recruit participants. Face-to-face questionnaires and semi-structured interviews will be used to collect quantitative and qualitative data, respectively. Quantitative data will be analysed using statistical analysis, while qualitative data will be analysed thematically. The expected outcomes are: (1) Analysis of the forms of violence experienced by children across the life course of childhood. (2) Analysis of the patterns of violence perpetrated by children against fellow children. (3) Analysis of the consequences of childhood violence for children’s wellbeing across the life course of childhood. (4) Analysis of the coping mechanisms for victims of childhood violence across the life course of childhood.
