About Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict

Watchlist was formed in 2001 by a group of leading human rights and humanitarian organizations in response to the need for improved monitoring and reporting on violations against children. Watchlist is known for its work on children and human rights, boasting – through its members – both a solid expertise on child protection and a wealth of information and experiences coming directly from the ground.

Watchlist is a fiscally-sponsored project of the Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the nation’s largest fiscal sponsor. Watchlist does not receive direct financial support from Tides Center. Watchlist’s programmatic content is set by an Advisory Board composed of six international NGOs:

– Human Rights Watch

– Norwegian Refugee Council

– Save the Children

– Terre Des Hommes

– World Vision International

– War Child

Watchlist’s network also includes Associate Member organizations, such as Child Soldiers International, Geneva Call, Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, and The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative who share a commitment to protect the security and rights of children affected by armed conflict.

Watchlist’s work follows three main program areas:

1) Monitoring and reporting – Watchlist monitors and reports on violations in specific countries.

2) Partner support – Watchlist supports local organizations to advocate on behalf of children within their own communities.

3) Advancing the children and armed conflict agenda – Watchlist provides policy advice at the highest level to advance the protection of children within the UN’s Children and Armed Conflict framework.
