Allons-y | August 2017

This second issue of Allons-y features three articles on some of the pressing issues that we face in dealing with the role of children and youth in conflict and crisis today: the harmful ideologies of Islamophobia and Islamist fundamentalism, the lack of a sufficient response to the mental health needs of refugee children, and the growing need to address the involvement of children in cyberattacks.

Letter from the Editor

The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative’s Executive Director Dr. Shelly Whitman writes the preface to the second edition of Allons-y, discussing the importance of putting children’s rights up front in the international peace and security agenda.
