|How can we better understand what norms underpin and create an enabling environment for violence and exploitation, and how can we transform them through promoting positive norms for child and adolescent development and well-being?
In 2018, the Learning Initiative on Norms, Exploitation, and Abuse (LINEA) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Care and Protection of Children (CPC) Learning Network at Columbia University will jointly host a webinar series exploring social norms as they relate to the fields of gender-based violence, violence against children, sexual exploitation and the abuse of children and adolescents. The conversation will feature a range of actors (from academics to practitioners to activists) contributing learning from their disciplines on the linkages between social norms and violence, exploitation, and abuse. This conversation can yield useful information for constructing a causal logic and identifying the pathways for changing behaviors, attitudes, and practice as they relate to the social norms within a particular context.
Webinar topic areas include:
1. Technology, the internet and social norms.
2. Using social media campaigns to change social norms.
3. Behavior change and social norms change approaches: Similarities and differences.
4. Men’s role in upholding and transforming social norms.
5. Adolescence and social norms.
