This chapter is concerned with the promotion and protection of children’s rights in post-conflict disaster contexts, with a particular focus on the contribution of transitional justice mechanisms to delivering improvements in respect for and realisation of children’s rights. The chapter conceptualizes transitional justice as one means of building sustainable peace in post-conflict states, making it an important element of durable solution promotion in conflict-related disaster contexts. Within this, children play a vital role as they will ultimately become responsible for the implementation of policies and practices that will ensure, or indeed risk, long term peace and stability. It is therefore essential that they are a principal focus of post-conflict transitional justice mechanisms.
