Protecting children's rights using community based approaches - Southern Sudan

Since the first influx of Sudanese refugees into Ethiopia in the late 80’s, Save the Children Sweden has played an important role in providing support, care and protection for the war-affected children in the region. One of the negative impacts of war is the breakdown of the social fabric which protects children from threats on their fundamental rights. In these situations, the role of parents, communities, civil society, the state and non-state actors in protecting children is minimised. This booklet summarises experiences gained prior to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in January 2005.
