Children and Armed Conflict
“The wounds inflicted by armed conflict on children - physical injury, gender-based violence, psychosocial distress - are affronts to every impulse that inspired the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Armed conflict affects all aspects of child development - physical, mental and emotional. Such effects accumulate and interact with each other.”
