52 groups on UN's list of shame on children and armed conflictListen /
The Secretary-General's annual report on children and armed conflict shows a mixed picture, with the crisis in Syria taking a toll on children, while violations have come to an end in other countries.
The report includes a list of parties which recruit and use children, kill and maim, commit sexual violence or attack schools and hospitals, the so-called “list of shame.”
The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy says of serious concern is the growing list of persistent perpetrators, which has doubled since last year.
Julie Walker spoke with Ms. Coomaraswamy about the report and what more needs to be done to combat the problem.
