NEW: Philippines, Release of Child Soldiers

Explore this new case study that describes how, in 2017, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), a non-state armed group, released all the child soldiers in its ranks; and how, two years later, the Philippines adopted a law protecting children involved in armed conflict.

What led the MILF to comply with IHL? Local support for this step and a desire for legitimacy?
A wish to be removed from the United Nations' list of parties to armed conflict that recruited and used child soldiers? Was it the MILF's compliance with IHL that led the Philippines government to provide further protection for children involved in armed conflict?

About the project

“IHL in action: Respect for the law on the battlefield” is a collection of real case-studies documenting compliance with international humanitarian law (IHL) in modern warfare. Based on publicly available information, these cases have been assessed by academics as demonstrating respect for IHL. From 2016 to 2020 the project has been conducted by four leadoff IHL clinics: Emory University School of Law, Leiden University, Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and Roma Tre University.

The current active partnership is with Leiden University. All cases have undergone independent peer review. The database is hosted by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) with a view to encourage the reporting, collection and promotion of instances of respect for IHL. The cases shall not be construed as reflecting the views of the ICRC.
