A Framework for the Protection of Children
Before building new weapon systems perhaps we governments could spend a few moments considering how to protect some of the most vulnerable within our populations -the children.
The Framework applies a child protection systems approach that includes actions for duty bearers at all levels – family, community, national and international – to mitigate and respond to the protection risks children are facing. This recognizes that all actors contribute to the comprehensive protection of children.
The Framework was developed by UNHCR, in consultation with States, partners, communities and children themselves: more than 300 refugee girls and boys of different ages and abilities in Kenya, Nepal, India and Jordan shared their thoughts and ideas on protection risks and solutions.
