(OSRSG-CAAC) – The international commitment to end the recruitment and use of children in armed conflict has led to the release and reintegration of more than 5,000 children in 2017, according to the latest numbers compiled by the United Nations; but tens of thousands more remain. Once released, these children still have to face the complex and long reintegration process into their communities, a decisive step for their wellbeing which also contributes to end the cycles of violence.
