Simonova Maria A, Filippov Vladimir M, Puzanova Zhanna V, Larina Tatiana I



Background: The implementation of the Lanzarote Convention ratification by Russia in 2013 entails a number of issues that cannot be resolved without the help of socio-humanitarian sciences. Sociocultural specificity is an important element of this process. Materials and Methods: Information from sociology, psychology and jurisprudence has been used to create a concept for empirical understanding of the problem of child domestic violence in order to improve the implementation of the Convention in Russia. Results: the concept considers three aspects of the problem – social and sociocultural, and national monitoring. Conclusion: the article may be useful in dealing with the implementation of the Lanzarote Convention, as well as the problems of child sexual abuse and domestic violence. The article also acquaints readers with the Russian experience of how the provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse are being implemented in the Russian Federation.
