National Child Protection Systems in the East Asia and Pacific Region

There appears to be growing awareness of and demand for a child protection system that works in harmony with the cultural and social contexts in which they operate. Increasingly, there is an understanding of the role that culture has in determining how and why a system functions as it does and ultimately the effect it has on the protection outcomes for children. In many countries with few resources, it is imperative to draw upon positive cultural assets, including protective family and community practices, such as kinship care and traditional mediation processes.
