Section outline

  • Introduction

    This webinar is for EAPPI National Coordinators working with Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MRM) on grave violations against children in armed conflict. 

    The aim of the webinar is to facilitate the National Coordinators to train and organize Ecumenical Accompaniers in doing advocacy for children's rights.

    When reporting on attacks against schools to UNICEF or Save the Children, the data does not just serves as documentation. It also prepares advocacy efforts to put Israel on a list of countries, in which grave violations against children's rights are directly reported to the UN Secretary General.

    The main objective is therefore to give a basic introduction to the MRM and to discuss together what can be done to advocate the listing of Israel by implementing the MRM in Israel / Palestine. 

    The keynote speaker is Hazem Salama. Hazem is the Monitoring and Evaluation Manager at Save the Children and has trained many NGOs and the Ministry of higher Education in Palestine on the MRM.
