This review begins by looking at the international and national rights of children as defined by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCROC) and the Treaty of Waitangi. It then reviews the categories of child abuse and the available New Zealand data. It then considers the factors relevant to the risk of child abuse, and the protective factors that can mitigate that risk. It finishes with a discussion and conclusion about recent New Zealand policy responses to child abuse and reducing the risk of New Zealand children being neglected and maltreated by their caregivers.
