Description

This edited volume analyses the evidence for how and why children become associated with, used by, and exit armed groups and considers how the international community can improve its efforts to prevent and respond to child recruitment. The volume specifically addresses the widely held assumption that there is something exceptional about the nature of contemporary conflicts and the armed groups fighting in them that requires unique policy and programmatic responses. The volume presents analysis based on original case study research, extensive interviews with key stakeholders, focus group discussions, and survey work. In each case study, a scrupulous effort was made to engage children and youth to understand their experiences.
