A 3rd Pocket Guide for the Canadian Police Forces deployed abroad on peacekeeping missions

Since 2017, all members of the Canadian police that are about to be deployed on international peace missions take part in a child protection training course facilitated by the IBCR.

During this training, they receive several pocket guides developed by the IBCR to help them understand and take ownership over the various child protection mechanisms, norms and standards in place.

A third guide has just been published, dedicated to monitoring and reporting mechanisms on grave violations committed against children in situations of armed conflict. It complements the two existing supports: one dedicated to child protection and international law, and the other to coordination between the different actors involved in child protection.

These tools are designed to be transportable and quickly available for consultation, as reminders on the key points of the protection of children’s rights and the coordination between the parties involved in the protection of children in situations of conflict.
