Field manual: Monitoring and reporting mechanism (MRM) on grave violations against children in situation of armed conflict

The information contained in this manual is meant to guide UN and its partners to implement a mechanism to monitor, report and respond to grave violations against children in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1612 and 1882, and in particular to assist persons at the technical level to establish an effective application of Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MRM) on Children and Armed Conflict. The sections in the Field Manual cover the basic elements for implementing MRM, and the contents are arranged in an order that is likely to be required for understanding and taking action to ensure the effective implementation of MRM. The annexes provide additional or detailed information and some specific examples that may be used or adapted for country specific needs. The six grave violations against children during times of conflict that should be monitored are: a.Killing or maiming of children; b.Recruitment or use of children as soldiers; c.Rape and other grave sexual abuse of children. d.Abduction of children; e.Attacks against schools or hospitals; f.Denial of humanitarian access for children
