Displaced children and adolescents

15

The feature section on displaced children and adolescents comprises 15 articles, including an introductory piece by Nils Kastberg, Director of UNICEF’s Office of Emergency Programmes, and a specially commissioned interview with General Roméo Dallaire, the Canadian International Development Agency’s Special Advisor on War-affected Children. For those of us far from day-to-day contact with those directly affected by conflict and displacement, General Dallaire’s passionate words are a reminder to retain our sense of outrage: “I don’t see how we can make treaties on weapons and on prevention of war and we can create an international court yet not move in a cultural sense to develop repugnance about children as combatants.”
