In October, Watchlist was chosen as a ‘top three’ finalist in the public voting round of the competition for the prestigious Human Rights Tulip Award for its innovative Children and Armed Conflict (CAC) Smartphone application. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Hague Institute for the Internationalization of Law (HiiL) are sponsoring this competition for initiatives that engage technology to further human rights. Watchlist’s CAC-Smartphone application aims to provide policy-makers and those seeking to influence them with readily available documents and language on child protection issues. It seeks to ensure that the important progress achieved within the Children and Armed Conflict Agenda translates into the negotiations of the Security Council resolutions, the mission mandates of peacekeeping operations and criteria for sanctions committees. The app is available for Android, Blackberry and iPhone devices. To date, over 4,000 users have downloaded the app. Watchlist performs regular content updates on the application, and is scheduled to make the content web-accessible later this fall. The contest is currently in the jury-selection phase, and the winner of the award will be announced on 11 December 2013. Watchlist extends its gratitude to everyone who participated in the campaign!
