Summary of Principles for Respecting and Ensuring Children's Rights in Peacemaking*

Principle 1: Consider the successive processes that constitute peacemaking as a sui generis or transformative form of lawmaking. 1(a)-(d).

Principle 2: Recall the applicability of international human rights law to — and its repeated performativity in and through — the staged and self constituting process. 2(a)-(d).

Principle 3: Reaffirm children’s international legal standing as subjects of human  rights and the international legal obligations to respect and ensure children’s rights in and through peacemaking. 3(a)-(e).

Principle 4: Take action to constitute the process with sui generis structural foci or mechanisms to give effect to children’s right for their rights to be performative in the transformative lawmaking process. 4(a)-(f).

Principle 5: Recognise the process needs legitimation and further recognise children’s evolving capacities to contribute to legitimating that same process. 5(a)-(c). 

Principle 6:  Seize the broader legal and political imagination associated with peacemaking to ensure the process is constitutive of children’s rights, in particular, their rights for their rights to be performative in the process and given legal effect through the successive agreements. 6(a)-(f).
