Eliminating the Use of Child Soldiers

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

As the leader of the United Nations peacekeeping force in Rwanda in 1994, Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire came face-to-face with child soldiers during the genocide there. Since then, the use of child soldiers has proliferated in conflicts around the world: they are cheap, plentiful, expendable, and loyal. In They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children: The Global Quest to Eradicate the Use of Child Soldiers, Dallaire looks at how the use of child soldiers can be eliminated.
