** ** CJCP International Youth Violence Prevention Conference****
Tanzania - 6th to 8th November 2012****
It is increasingly recognized that young people are central to issues of
crime and violence, in particular. Research shows that young people suffer
much higher levels of victimization than adults. They are also often the
perpetrators of violence against other youth and the population as whole.
The issue of violence against and by youth is receiving growing attention
in the media, and it is increasingly acknowledged that there will be a
grave cost to country governments and to society if youth issues are not
Models of behaviour to which young people are exposed and the levels of
care and support they receive play a key role in determining non-violent
outcomes for young people. In many instances, young peoples engagement in
violence behavior is a product of the failure of existing policy to cater
the developmental needs of parents, children and youth. Violence is for
many young people a part of life; it is a feature of their homes, schools
and communities, and has become an accepted component of young peoples
social interactions. Many accepted drivers are compounded by shortfalls in
childcare, afterschool care and recreation, which could otherwise help to
steer children toward more pro-social modes of behaviour; parenting
practices that promote violence; and young peoples limited opportunities
for personal growth. Addressing crime and violence amongst both children
and youth requires not only engaging young people, but also parents,
teachers, principals and other thought-leaders in creating environments
that provide youth with non-violent models of behaviour. ****
The conference aims to achieve a number of objectives:****
1. Provide a forum for sharing of research and good practice for
regional and international practitioners, researchers and policy makers;
2. Interrogate the data on youth violence in the identified regions, and
explore the degree to which reliable data exists; ****
3. Explore the evidence-base on which policies, programmes and
interventions in Southern, central and East Africa, are formulated; ****
4. Identify good and promising practice in youth and child violence
5. Provide the basis for an on-going collection of data and evidence,
and for a network of researchers and practitioners in East, Southern and
Central Africa. ****
*Date and venue of the conference*****
The conference is to be held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, between the 6thand 8
th November 2012. ****
