PRESS RELEASE 089
Spain will host the III International Conference on Safe Schools in 2019
25/09/2018

​Spain has participated in a meeting on the reintegration of children recruited by armed forces and groups held in New York, demonstrating its commitment to this agenda and its support of the Coalition launched by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Virginia Gamba.

UNICEF notes that, out of the over 55,000 children released after being recruited for armed conflicts in different countries of the world during the past five years, only 42,000 have benefited from reintegration programmes. Ensuring access to an educational system under safe conditions, taking into consideration the gender and age of the minors affected by armed conflicts is, according to the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Mr Fernando Valenzuela, one of the Spanish Government’s priorities for action in this area.

For this reason, Spain announced in this act, presided over by the Queen of Belgium, that we will host the III International Conference on Safe Schools in 2019, after those held in Oslo (2015) and Buenos Aires (2017). The Conference will be aimed at internationally promoting the Safe Schools Declaration; a public instrument created to protect students, teachers and educational institutions during armed conflicts. To date, 80 States have signed the Declaration.
