Underage and Under Fire: An Enquiry into the Use of Child Soldiers 1994-8.
Hoiskar, Astri Halsan
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n3 p340-60 Aug 2001
Identifies, via analysis of 165 countries, the circumstances under which some nations' armed forces or groups employed children in armed conflicts during the period 1994-98. Concludes that child participation is primarily linked to repressive and unstable regimes and to protracted conflicts. Suggests child employment reduces rather than enhances the recruitment of children. (Author)
