Abandon et prise en charge des enfants en Afrique : une problématique centrale pour la protection de l'enfant
Child?s care is a central issue in the field of child abuse and neglect in Africa. Whether children are cared for within or outside the family, or by institutions, the disruptions lead to children?s exploitation, maltreatment, abuse, neglect or abandonment. This article aims to review the literature on this issue. Even though the sociology and anthropology of childhood provide a qualitative insight of various patterns - both past and present - of child?s care, understanding admittedly remains very incomplete, the classification of situations is unsettled and the measure of various phenomena is lacking, both in terms of prevalence and trends.
