Seminar on Violence in the lives of children in South Africa

The Centre for Social Development in Africa (CSDA) at the University of Johannesburg, the DST-NRF Centre for Excellence in Human Development at Wits, and the UCT Children’s Institute is hosting a seminar on Violence in the lives of children in South Africa. 

The Birth to Twenty Plus (Bt20+) study, now in its 28th year, has collected information on the lives of children and families over three generations. It is the largest and longest running study of children’s health and development in Africa, and one of the few large-scale longitudinal studies in the world. With extensive knowledge and experience of leading the Bt20+ study, Prof Linda Richter will share research results relating to violence in children’s lives across gender and generations. This research is critical to finding evidence-based solutions in reducing and preventing violence in children’s lives in South Africa. Policy makers and practitioners working in the fields of families, child wellbeing, and violence prevention will find this seminar valuable.

The seminar will take place on Tuesday, 15 May, starting at 13:30 for 14:00, at the University of Johannesburg. For more information email send a email to
