This English-language Field Frame Analysis maps the competing narratives used by influential organizations to frame the debate on early child development and violence, especially violence related to early childhood. It finds that narratives of early child development are siloed and distinct with little attention given to the cognitive process of development. Organizations that communicate about violence, on the other hand, focus on one single dominant narrative, thereby missing opportunities to explore the breadth of the issue. The report concludes with recommendations as to how organizations working on these issues can use lessons from other phases of this project to communicate more effectively.
