Child Soldiers: Caught Up in Conflict

Jun 6, 2013 - 12:30 PM-14:00 PM (Eastern)

The use of children as soldiers has been universally condemned as abhorrent and unacceptable. Yet over the last ten years hundreds of thousands of children have fought and died in conflicts around the world. This video conference will connect students with former child soldiers in what promises to be a profoundly moving and inspiring event. We will learn both about the complexities of the situations in which children become caught up in conflict and what the most appropriate and impactful response a student might take. In this conference, students will research organizations doing work with child soldiers and examine critically the structures and policies in place by these organizations to address this critical human rights issue.
