Comments The "Paris Commitments" lay out detailed guidelines for protecting children from recruitment and for providing assistance to those already involved with armed groups or forces. They complement the political and legal mechanisms already in place at the UN Security Council, the International Criminal Court and other bodies trying to protect children from exploitation and violence.
