The Safe Schools Declaration

The Safe Schools Declaration was developed through a process led by Argentina and Norway, with the objective of avoiding military use of schools and strengthen protection of children and education in conflict. The declaration was launched at the Oslo Conference on Safe Schools: Protecting Education from Attack, 28–29 May 2015. The main objective of the Conference was to for states to endorse the Safe Schools Declaration. Since the Oslo conference, states and civil society work together to increase the number of endorsements and to implement the declaration.
