VOICES FROM THE FIELD: Protecting Children from Conflict and Strengthening Accountability of Armed Actors

September 2012

International Peace Institute


One week ago, the UN Security Council called on member states to bring armed actors who are violating children’s rights to justice. This call to end impunity was one of the key conclusions of a roundtable discussion held at the International Peace Institute and co-organized with Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict on September 17th, just two days before the adoption of Resolution 2068 on children and armed conflict.
