Children and War in Africa: The Crisis Continues in Northern Uganda
MetadataShow full item record
Since the 1990s when the nature of conflict changed from interstate to intrastate, the use of children in the battlefronts and related places has become unprecedented. This paper discusses issues on children and war based on African experiences. The paper shows how children and their surroundings suffer in war conditions and how the crisis of use of children continues in northern Uganda. Issues that face children in war refuse to go away, the paper concludes. This paper is a version of the theoretical framework of the author's thesis on the social reintegration of war-affected children in northern Uganda. She is indebted to Inge Hutter, Peter Kanyandago and Jacques Zeleen.
