About the product

Reports indicate that, in the past years, thousands of persons below the age of eighteen (hereinafter “children”) have been recruited and exploited by terrorist and violent extremist groups. These children are subject to violence at multiple levels, and, at the same time, they may become particularly dangerous instruments in the hands of those exploiting them and/or instrumentalising them for committing criminal or terrorism-related offences. The guidance provided in this Roadmap is based on multiple relevant legal regimes, namely, international human rights law, international law regarding counter-terrorism, international criminal law, international humanitarian law and international refugee law.
