​Children in Conflict: Basic Mapping

Led by Gudrun Østby
Sep 2017 - Oct 2018

​PRIO is carrying out a data mapping exercise of key indicators for children in conflict over the last 20 years, from 1997-2016, as well as some basic analysis of the main risk factors. This research will be used to inform Save the Children's Protecting Children in Conflict strand of work, and will form part of a flagship report for the organization, to be presented at the Munic Security Summit in February 2018.

​The mapping will provide an overview of the patterns of armed conflict, number of children affected by armed conflict, child mortality in conflict zones, sexual violence against children, as well as the prevalence of child soldiers.
