REINFORCEMENT TRAINING PACKAGE ON CHILD PROTECTION FOR THE UNITED NATIONS MILITARY

Background 

Deploying Military peacekeepers trained in child rights and child protection has become an increasingly crucial element for UN Peace Operations. They are mandated by the Security Council resolutions on children and armed conflict, which were established to protect children from the effects of conflict. Security Council resolutions 1261 (1999), 1379 (2001), 1460 (2003), 1612 (2005), 2143 (2014), 2225 (2015), and 2427 (2018) specifically call for training of peacekeepers on the protection and rights of children and pre-deployment awareness training on child protection. Accordingly, the training of Military peacekeepers on Child Protection is recognised as a key priority for the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) in its Child Protection Policy.
