In 2016 – 2018, Watchlist will seek to protect the lives of children in war zones by holding accountable (1) parties to conflict who commit grave violations; and (2) UN actors that implement the UN’s Children and Armed Conflict (CAC) agenda. In order to do so, Watchlist will pursue the following four strategic goals:

  • Watchlist will explore and contribute to the development of more effective monitoring, reporting, and response to child rights violations.
  • Watchlist will produce a more accurate and credible list of perpetrators of child rights violations.
  • Watchlist will work with others to ensure more action plans are implemented successfully.
  • Watchlist will advocate for accountability of perpetrators of violations through the effective implementation of the CAC agenda.
