(Watchlist Press Release) – Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict is concerned that the peace process between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia People’s Army (FARC–EP) in Havana, still falls short of recognizing child soldiers as victims of the conflict. “Despite recent efforts to include the issue of child soldiers in the negotiation, parties to the peace process should not turn a blind eye to the thousands of child soldiers who have yet to be recognized as victims and are entitled to effective remedies for the violation of their rights.” said Gilles-Philippe Pagé, Partnerships Program Officer at Watchlist.
