Event description

Description

Children and adolescents bear the brunt of war and armed conflict. From Syria to South Sudan, thousands of today’s young people will be exposed to protracted crises and suffer the after-effects well beyond childhood. Children’s and adolescents’ psychosocial well-being is at great risk from exposure to violence, and the violations of their rights as a result of armed conflict can have devastating effects on their trajectory from adolescence into adulthood.

On Universal Children’s Day, the Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) programme, ODI and War Child UK convene an expert panel to discuss innovative approaches to child protection in conflict-affected contexts. Hear from academics and practitioners who are using creative strategies and platforms to tackle the harmful, long-lasting impacts of conflict on children and young people.
