The increase in Covid-19 cases in Indonesia was followed by a large-scale social restriction policy that aims to break the chain of distribution. On the other hand, this policy causes violence to vulnerable groups, especially children. Based on data from the Complaints Service section of the Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, there has been a monthly increase in cases of violence handled since March of 2020. Writing this paper is important because this phenomenon illustrates the efforts of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia to protect children. This paper aims to find out what factors cause violence against children during the Covid-19 pandemic and how the government atempts to protect children from violence during the Covid-19 pandemic. This research was conducted using an empirical juridical method. Based on the results of rapid research, it can be concluded that the main causes of the increase in violence against children during the Covid-19 Pandemic are psychological and economic factors. Meanwhile, the efforts made by the government, in this case, the Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, are by optimizing community-based integrated child protection.
