20090401 Machel Study 10 Year Strategic Review Children and Conflict in a Changing World UNICEF



UNICEF was a co-convenor of the 10th anniversary strategic review of the issues raised in the landmark
1996 Machel study on the impacts of conflict on children. UNICEF welcomes the publication of this
review, titled Machel Study 10-Year Strategic Review: Children and Conflict in a Changing World, which aims to serve as an advocacy and policy tool on children and armed conflict, and as the foundation of
a platform for action. The findings of the report are the results of a wide-ranging, multistakeholder process that included participation by young people.

This publication is intended to inspire even greater efforts to ensure that children suffering from the
consequences of conflict receive the care and support they need grow to productive adulthood and contribute
to their communities.
