FDFA Action Plan for the protection of children associated with armed forces or groups in armed conflict 2014 – 2016
Today, there are about a quarter of a million children under the age of 18 enlisted in or associated with armed forces or armed groups. By adopting the present action plan, Switzerland hopes to achieve greater impact and commitment in the protection of children associated with armed forces or groups in armed conflict. In particular the emphasis will be on greater efforts to prevent child recruitment and on the reintegration of the children concerned through support for projects that can concretely improve their daily lives and future prospects.
