Chapter Summary

The underlying core belief for this book is that you cannot separate the pre-existing conditions that children and youth already experience in peacetime, including how they are being viewed, from their utter vulnerability in war, as the violations committed against them in wartime do take place in a certain context. It also shows how interrelated the issues are, and that it is necessary to view them from various perspectives and for this reason different issues will be discussed in more. There is a need of a much more focused and efficient policy of governments to address the situation of children, and that requires a serious examination of the different issues affecting children and youth in a more comprehensive way. It needs to be recognized that the situation for children in armed conflicts is fundamentally related to the underlying causes of conflicts.
