Essay Topic - SDGs Goal 16
The issue of ‘Child Soldier’ is a serious social problem in most of the countries in African regions where ongoing armed conflicts occur on a regular basis. Not only ground on local level support, but there have also been growing calls on an international level to heighten internal and external supports for child soldiers who have experienced civil wars, suffering from physical and mental exhaustion. Goal 16 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals also accentuates the importance of eradicating every form of child-related abuse such as exploitation and human trafficking. In your opinion, why should we protect and promote children’s rights in order to fulfill Goal 16? Furthermore, what kinds of policies should come as a priority for developing countries that lack social infrastructure, in order to protect the rights of children?
