Child Trafficking, Child Soldiering: Exploring the Relationship Between Two Worst Forms of Child Labour
Author: Carl Conradi. Publisher: The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative. This new research report aims to; provide an overview of existing literature on child trafficking and child soldiering; identify potential linkages between the two bodies of knowledge; and illustrate the spectrum of trafficking-related vulnerabilities that child soldiers may face before, during and after armed conflict.
The hope is that this foundational review will generate impetus for further field research, strengthen efforts to prevent child recruitment and expand the suite of options available to law practitioners who are empowered to prosecute those who victimise children during war.
