United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
Topic : Protection of Displaced Women and Children in Conflict Situation.
One of the mandates of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is to protect women and children as the most vulnerable group during the conflict situation. Put women and children first means that they have to be saved first in a life-threatening situation. Protection towards women and children in conflict situations means that we have to protect them from violence, war, and ensure that we protect their future. The impact of armed conflict on children, especially infants and young children, cannot be considered in isolation from women. In the committee session of AWMUN IV, the delegates will discuss the protection of displaced women and children in conflict situations. Moreover, women are the primary child caregivers, when they are affected by war, so are children.
