The ICPNC joined with partners including the Canadian International Education Policy Working Group (CIEPWG), The Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative and Human Rights Watch, in co-signing a joint public letter to the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, National Defence, and International Development and La Francophonie. The joint public letter welcomes Canada’s endorsement of the Safe Schools Declaration earlier this year, and urges the Government of Canada to continue Canada’s international leadership in support of protecting the rights of children affected by armed conflict.
