A future in the balance:
Expanding the positive outcomes for a whole generation of children from Syria and Iraq
The conflicts in Syria and Iraq must come to an end. All those with influence must redouble their efforts to achieve a political solution to these conflicts so that refugees and internally displaced people can voluntarily return in safety and dignity. In the meantime, all violations of children’s rights must cease as an urgent priority, in particular all attacks on education, health and water facilities.
For the refugees, policy makers, donors and humanitarians can help prevent a ‘Lost Generation’ and expand the positive choices available to children like Nour and Radwan. To do this they need to deliver on the commitments made at the London Conference in February 2016.
