Spotlighting Palestinian Children's Rights: Human Rights Defenders with a Child-Centric Perspective

This urgent child-centric event aims to spotlight on the rights of Palestinian children living under occupation and in armed conflict. Through a child-rights perspective, the event will focus on the multifaceted challenges faced by Palestinian children, including the impact of military occupation in the West Bank and the war in Gaza. It will also address the responsibilities of states and the international system in supporting and protecting children’s rights, preventing crimes against Palestinian children, and ensuring accountability for violations.
