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.

The criminalization of child recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups

The prohibition of child recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups is founded on at least two sets of international obligations. First, child recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups must be prohibited as part of the counter-terrorism framework that obliges States to combat terrorism and to take preventive action to disrupt, terrorist activities at the earliest stage possible. Secondly, child recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups must be prohibited as part of the State’s obligations to protect children against all forms of violence.
