Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict

The Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict was formed by a group of leading human rights and humanitarian organizations in response to the need for improved monitoring and reporting on violations against children. Today, these organizations form Watchlist’s international Steering Committee :

- CARE International
- Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers
- International Save the Children Alliance
- Norwegian Refugee Council
- Women’s Commission for Refugee Women and Children
- World Vision International

The Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict operates within the framework of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to strive to end violations against children in armed conflicts and to guarantee their rights.

Specifically, Watchlist aims to improve child protection in specific conflict situations by monitoring and reporting of Children in Armed Conflict (CAC) violations, by urging implementation of international commitments, and by empowering local organizations and community members to carry out effective monitoring, reporting, advocacy and child protection activities in conflict settings.

As a global network, the Watchlist builds partnerships among local, national and international non-governmental organizations, enhancing mutual capacities and strengths. Working together, we strategically collect and disseminate information on violations against children in conflicts in order to influence key decision-makers to create and implement programs and policies that effectively protect children.

Angola Report

According to UNICEF, Angola was among the worst places in the world to be a child, at least until 2002. One out of every three children used to die before the age of five. This was equal to one child dying every three minutes and 420 children dying every day. More than half of Angola’s population is under 18, yet little attention is paid to the urgent needs of youth and the consistent violations of their rights by the government and the opposition armed forces during the war.
