CCLC developed a two-week training course on child rights and child protection in armed conflict for KAIPTC, an international research and training centre that conducts professional training courses on conflict prevention, management and resolution. Participants in the courses include military personnel, International Peace Support Operations, police officers, African Union personnel and others. CCLC’s modules are grounded in international human rights law, humanitarian law and other international standards. They are highly participatory and draw heavily on participants’ experiences. They cover important underlying topics, such as; international human rights law, child protection, justice for children and the use of children as participants in conflict, and also advice on specific conflict related challenges, including; disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration, trafficking and sexual exploitation and abuse.
