Displaced children and adolescents
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.”
