Description

Interactive panel: Reintegrating Children as a contribution to Peace and Security: Delivering Long-term and Sustainable Solutions

Helping children affected by armed conflict rebuild their lives is vital to advance the sustaining peace agenda. Successful reintegration of children formerly associated with armed forces or groups is essential to break cycles of violence and prevent conflict. How can we support countries to facilitate the return of children and reunite them with their families, respond to specific needs of girls and prepare communities while guaranteeing the best interest of the child?

Participants will interact with international and local child protection actors highlighting the need for strategic partnerships to ensure comprehensive, long-term and sustainable reintegration for children affected by conflict.

The panel will be composed of the following speakers:

Ms. Virginia Gamba, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict
UNICEF (tbc)
Ms. Isabelle Guitard, C
hild Soldiers International
Mr. Isaac Odiya,
Justice and Reconciliation Project

Moderator: Barbara Schedler-Fischer, Deputy Head of the Human Security Division of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland.
