image of Prevention of Child Recruitment and Exploitation by Terrorist and Violent Extremist Groups

The present Manual presents practical approaches and measures that can be put in place, particularly in the justice system and in collaboration with other sectors, to prevent child recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups. Pursuing the common goal of preventing child recruitment by terrorist and violent extremist groups involves working together, not only within the justice system but also with other systems such as child protection, education and health, to design early interventions for children at risk and ensure that these children and their families receive the protection, assistance and support that they need.

Family support

Family members have a protective role over children, benefiting from a close connection and intimate knowledge of children’s lives. They are an essential part of a child’s protective environment. Parents are often best positioned to notice changes in a child’s attitudes and behaviours. The family unit, as a conduit of culture and beliefs, plays a central role in shaping attitudes towards non-violence and affirming a sense of belonging. Families also play a key role in the reintegration of children victims of recruitment after their release and can help prevent re-recruitment.
