    Dr Siobhan O’Neil briefed a UN Security Council Arria Formila meeting on a project undertaking with War Child UK to help show how bridging the humanitarian-development-peace nexus can lead to more sustainable and successful reintegration.


    The purpose of this Arria-formula meeting was to look in particular at how children can be better supported once they are separated from armed forces and armed groups and how bridging the humanitarian-development-peace nexus can lead to more sustainable and successful reintegration. It considered how children’s views can lead to more effective strategies for reintegration and post-conflict recovery and how states and the humanitarian, development and peacebuilding community can transform affected children into peacebuilders, agents of positive change in their communities, and champions of the Sustainable Development Goals to foster social and economic development.
