May 24, 2019 – In this open letter, Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict joined 21 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in calling on UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to publish a complete and accurate list of perpetrators of violations against children in his upcoming annual report to the Security Council on children and armed conflict. The listing process serves as a foundation for the UN to engage with parties to conflict, secure concrete commitments through UN action plans, and create real change for children affected by war, the NGOs stated in the letter.

In the letter, the NGOs urged the Secretary-General to “identify, unequivocally condemn, and list those parties to armed conflict that have committed grave violations against children.”
