Over the last two decades, the number of children engaged in child labour had declined by 94 million.2 Now, the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to slow or even reverse that progress and increases the risk of more children joining hazardous labour.3 As result, we might see an increase in child labour for the first time in 20 years.4 A “child associated with an armed force or armed group” refers to “any person below 18 years of age who is or who has been recruited or used by an armed force or armed group in any capacity, including but not limited to children used as fighters, cooks, porters, messengers, spies or for sexual purposes.” (...) Due to security constraints, and unwillingness of children and families to disclose child association, the total number of children associated with armed forces and groups is believed to be much higher. (...) Treat children associated with armed forces and armed groups primarily as survivors of child rights violations and clearly refer to them first as children in need of protection no matter the armed force or group with which they may have been associated, including by adopting legislation that criminalizes child recruitment and use.
