How can the wellbeing and human rights of children born of war (CBOW) be secured? Which evidence exists from research and practice and how can this knowledge be used to implement strategies to secure this vulnerable population in present and future conflict and post-conflict zones?

The"Platform for action promoting the rights and wellbeing of children born of conflict-related sexual violence" provides answers and is a milestone in setting an overlooked group of war victims on the agenda. The platform defines four core areas that governments, civil society and organisations can engage in to improve the situation of children born of conflict-related sexual violence.

The Platform was officially launched at the International Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI) Conference, hosted by the government of United Kingdom Conference in London, November 28 to 29 2022.
