The present study begins by introducing the concept of Protective Environment and the application of this concept to child protection. There is discussion of some recent debates on the social responsibility of state child welfare and child protection. Additionally, increasing recognition is being given to the importance of preventing/protecting of children from harmful developmental environment regarding to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The Protective Environment Framework identifies the essential components in any society of keeping children safer and healthier from violence, exploitation, abuse, and inappropriate developmental circumstances. The most important components are government commitment and capacity, legislation and enforcement, social value, culture and customs, effective and efficient service delivery system, networking and cooperation, monitoring and feedback, open public discussion, education and campaign, and active participation of families and communities in terms of child protection.
This study describes a range of child protection system among OECD countries. Data were collected from four countries (i.e. U.S., U.K., Sweden, and Japan) via policy documents, internet sites, and previous studies. Also, UN national reports responding to ‘The UN Study on Violence against Children’ were analyzed to propose the future direction and improvement strategy to Korea child protection system.
