Allons-y | January 2019

This third volume of Allons-y features four articles on how militarization and armed violence targets and harms children, and how this trauma is challenging to undo: one article discusses the plight of children in autocratic North Korea, one the sexual violence targeted at girls in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), one the shortcomings of the reintegration process for children released from armed groups in the DRC, and one the mental health support challenges faced by refugee youth.
