This report is a call to all parties to conflict in DRC to immediately halt abuses against children and uphold all international obligations to protect children’s security and rights. It is also a call to the international community, particularly the UN Security Council, to work vigorously to ensure the end of abuses against Congolese children and adolescents. This includes abuses committed by all parties to conflict and international personnel stationed in DRC. To this end, the UN Security Council must press for special attention to the security and rights of children in peace negotiations, an end to impunity for crimes against children and support for programs and policies to protect and improve the lives of Congolese children, even as the conflict continues.
