Children affected by war

ESRC Seminar Series
Violence and Childhood: International Perspectives

Seminar 5:
Children affected by war (with a focus on 'child soldiers')

Thursday 30 June 2011, 10am - 4.30pm
B20 & B04
Birkbeck College, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX

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.
