For over a decade, the United Nations Security Council has steadily advanced the development of a thematic children and armed conflict (“CAC”) agenda. However, these thematic developments have not been reflected consistently in the Council’s country-specific work. Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict has developed a ten-point checklist to assist Security Council experts and others in mainstreaming the protection of children affected by armed conflict in country-specific Security Council resolutions. Each item in the checklist is derived from Security Council thematic resolutions on children and armed conflict and is supported by additional detailed recommendations.
