In recent years, a significant increase in abduction of children in the situations on the children and armed conflict agenda signaled an urgent need to ensure that all those monitoring, reporting and advocating are equipped with strong tools to end and prevent the abduction of children, in line with the Security Council request.

On the occasion of this event, participants are invited to: 

  • Take stock of the impact since the adoption of resolution 2225 in 2015 with regards to reporting and accountability around abduction as a grave violation;
  • Examine the linkages between the abduction of children in armed conflicts;
  • Propose concrete solutions to closing protection gaps in collaboration across mandates and settings with the view to strengthening monitoring, reporting and response to the abduction of children.
