Childhood and Violence: international and comparative perspectives
– Seminar 5: Children affected by war,
with a focus on “child soldiers”

 

This seminar focuses on the impact of war on children and childhood, looking specifically at child soldiers. Although young soldiers are not a new phenomenon, the extreme brutality and brutalising of child soldiers in recent conflicts has made the abolition of the use of children as soldiers a core demand of many international non-governmental organisations and child rights practitioners.
