The UN Security Council’s has been recently involved in the protection of children in armed conflict, particularly by seeking to prevent the recruitment and use of child soldiers. The process, initiated by Council Resolution 1612, has interesting parallels with non-compliance mechanisms in international environmental law and can be seen as an innovative attempt to harness the Security Council’s “soft power” to engage both State and non-State parties to conflicts.
