Abstract: Protecting children in conflict is a key concern for international children's legislation and its implementation today, with over 250 million children living in conditions of armed conflict. The international legal measures that safeguard children during armed conflict are examined in this article. It examines the general legal rights afforded to children during times of conflict, particularly their access to critical resources for their physical and mental well-being (such as medical treatment, food, and clothes) and to developmental activities, including education. It also looks at how international law prevents children from becoming involved in armed conflicts, including the restriction on their recruitment and use in hostilities, as well as how children who are captured or detained should be treated. The article concludes with a brief description of how, over the last few decades, the protection of children in armed conflict has grown to be a major worldwide problem, particularly within the UN system.
