Coinciding with the release of the UN Secretary-General’s report on the Responsibility to Protect – which this year focuses on the impact of atrocities on children and the role of youth in preventing atrocities – in this episode we sat down with Adrianne Lapar, Director of Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict. During the episode, Adrianne reflects on the progress made on the Children and Armed Conflict mandate as we commemorate its 25th anniversary this year, as well as various UN tools for the assessment of violations against children. Adrianne also provides reflections on how the atrocity prevention community can better address the unique risks faced by children.
