The survey results showed that children and young people in BiH know the definition of violence, but very often cannot recognize all its forms in practice. 

The age of the respondents was between 14 to 31 years, and the analysis results of the questionnaire show that the total number of children and young people out of 306 ( or 98% ) stated that they know what violence is, 2 or ( 1% ) did not know and 2 or ( 1% ) did not give any answer. According to the results, children and young people know what is violence, but do not recognized it, along with its different forms, only 66 respondents ( or 7 % ) declared economic violence as a form of violence.
