3. How does this form of violence violate children’s rights?
Identify five articles of the CRC that are breached by this form of violence.
Provide the number of each CRC article breached, summarize what each article states, and demonstrate how this form of violence is a violation of each article you have identified.
4. What should our government be doing differently in order to end this form of violence in Canada? Provide three clear, well-thought-out, feasible recommendations for ending this form of violence in Canada. Even if you are writing on Nujood’s or Dirie’s book, I want you to focus on Canada so that you ask yourself whether these issues exist in Canada – and if so, to what extent?
What is Canada doing now to address them and what more should we be doing?
Your recommendations should come out of the thinking you have done about the factors that contribute to this form of violence at various levels of the human ecological system.
For each recommendation, you should explain which factor(s) it targets and why you would expect it to have impact.
