"Protecting Children in Times of Crisis"
Susan Bissell, Chief of Child Protection, UNICEF
Children in disasters and humanitarian crises—from the earthquake in Haiti to the civil war in Syria—are easy targets for child trafficking, recruitment by armed forces and child labor. Working across 170 countries, Bissell will discuss how UNICEF seeks to prevent harm and respond to children affected by conflict and disasters.
