The Dallaire Institute was created with the unique premise that preventing violence against children requires a dual lens approach. They are focused on prioritizing the protection of children, as well as understanding the significant operational impacts upon security sector actors.

Through innovative approaches to knowledge creation and dissemination, they bridge security and humanitarian perspectives and responses to create a holistic approach to the issues of children affected by armed violence. Drawing on their vast expertise and the breadth of perspectives of those with lived experience, they provide policy guidance, work to increase awareness and political will, build operational effectiveness in security institutions and engage communities.

Dr. Whitman will be speaking on the topic of Developing leadership to prevent the recruitment and use of children in armed violence.
