New Approaches to Reporting Grave Violations of Children's Rights in Armed Conflict

Published

on



https://www.sfcg.org/events/wncac-july-2014/

In 2005, the Security Council requested in Resolution 1612 that the UN Secretary-General to establish a monitoring and reporting mechanism (MRM),to provide timely and reliable information on six grave children’s rights violations:

Killing or maiming of children
Recruitment or use of children by armed forces or armed groups
Attacks on schools or hospitals
Rape or other sexual violence against children
Abduction of children
Denial of humanitarian access to children

In the countries concerned, this mechanism is  managed by country-based task forces co-led by UNICEF and the highest UN representative in the country, The Secretary-General lists in annual reports on children and armed conflict the names of armed forces or armed groups that commit grave violations against children and urges parties involved in implementing time-bound action plans to halt these.

Eva Smets of Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict (Watchlist) will present its recently released ‘Resource Pack for Non-Governmental Organizations’ on civil society engagement in the UN-led MRM.  Its aim is to provide NGOs with the tools to determine whether, and how, to monitor and report grave violations. The Resource Pack contains tools on planning and engaging in MRM reporting. It includes factsheets, guiding questions, checklists, matrixes, case studies, charts, and diagrams.

Les Roberts will describe an innovative survey approach to producing estimates of the prevalence of grave violations against children in a conflict-affected population. He will discuss a surveys done in DR Congo’s South Kivu Province in 2011 that found very high levels and 2013 repeat study that found dramatic reductions in grave violations.  Incident reporting during this same period had suggested an increase in violations during the same period.  This dichotomy reflects the tension between data collected to guide policy versus data collected for legal systems or to name and shame.  Data collected for legal purposes requires a high level of certainty and confirmation, while survey approach promises interviewees anonymity.  Les will compare the respective advantages and limitations of the two approaches for MRM reporting.

Presenters:
Eva Smets is the Executive Director of Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict. Previously, Eva was based in Kinshasa (DR Congo) as Oxfam International’s Policy and Advocacy Coordinator, and in Nairobi (Kenya) as Care International’s Regional Advocacy Adviser. In these roles, she advised country programs on humanitarian advocacy issues encountered in the field, supported the development of organization-wide advocacy strategies and authored several articles, reports and related materials. Eva holds a master’s degree in human rights and democratization from the University of Padova, Italy, and a degree in history from the University of Brussels in Belgium. Eva is Belgian and is based in New York.

Les Roberts teaches in the Program on Forced Migration and Health at Columbia University.  His present research focuses on developing methods to document human rights violations, and on statistically representative surveillance methodologies. He holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering and did a post-doctorate fellowship in epidemiology at the Centers for Disease Control and afterwards worked for WHO in Rwanda during the 1994 Civil war and then for the International Rescue Committee.

The Washington Network on Children and Armed Conflict (WNCAC) is an informal network initiated in July 2004 by Search for Common Ground and the Displaced Children and Orphans Fund of USAID with the broad aim of improving the protection of children affected by armed conflict. Topics addressed include such issues and areas of practice as child protection; education; psychosocial interventions in emergencies; child soldiers; separated children; humanitarian relief; post-conflict development; conflict resolution; and peace building.

The Network for Youth in Transition is a free online evidence-based resource focused on youth and transition issues. It includes funding opportunities, evaluations, innovative youth programs, reports, videos, and members from over 100 countries.
