Child Soldiers

The Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers was formed in May 1998 by leading international human rights and humanitarian organizations. It works to prevent the recruitment and use of children as soldiers, to secure their demobilisation and to ensure their rehabilitation and reintegration into society.
The website offers information categorised by country and region. There is also a section on International Standards on children and armed conflict; information for journalists; a comprehensive section on DDR (disarmament, demobilization and reintegration) of child soldiers; the Child Soldiers Newsletter and the Global Report. The coalition has also developed a psycho-social section to foster a constructive inter and intra-disciplinary dialogue on relevant psycho-social issues in the area of children and armed conflict.

UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre (IRC)

UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre (IRC) works to strengthen the capacity of UNICEF and its cooperating institutions to respond to the evolving needs of children and to develop a new global ethic for children. It promotes the effective implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, in both developing and industrialized countries.
Its website offers access to a number of internal bibliographic resources and databases, as well as links to a number of external databases, on-line resources and organizations that will be of interest to those working to promote the rights of children and women.
