Summary of Principles for Giving Effect to 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 concomitant obligation to give effect to those rights in and through peacemaking. 3(a)-(e).

Principle 4: Constitute the process with sui generis structural foci or mechanisms to ensure children's rights are performative in the same and given legal effect through the resultant agreements. 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: Note taking action to ensure Principles 3 and 4 may demand particular legal and political imagination and further note 'the radical progressive potential of peace processes' is made of 'such stuff'. 6(a)-(f).
