Paris Principles Operational Handbook


The Paris Principles Handbook is for child protection specialists, government officials, and others working to prevent the recruitment and use of children by armed forces or armed groups; separate children from armed forces and armed groups or to identify them after they have exited armed forces or groups; and support children after their release or exit from armed forces or armed groups and during reintegration with families and communities.

The Handbook contains information and advice on a comprehensive set of topics, from the applicable international legal frameworks to how to manage caseloads and how to approach specific issues such as economic reintegration or justice and accountability.
