The UN Security Council has issued numerous documents on Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC) over the years. Many use similar language across each other, which is often used to push back on our negotiations. The Office of UN Political Affairs seeks someone to compare a set of CAAC conclusions, look for similarities in language, particularly with respect to diplomatic correspondence to/from the U.S. government. As a result of this effort, the United States will be more informed for the next CAAC negotiations in the Security Council.
