Abstract:

Sara Cameron reports on the Children's Movement for Peace in Colombia which, with the support of organizations like UNICEF, has put into practice the fundamental principles of child rights and participation. Cameron shows how the Convention on the Rights of the Child gave the power to these children to protest against war in ways that have profoundly transformed communities across the country. She argues that the Children's Movement for Peace provides many lessons for other countries and communities in conflict for children to exert a strong influence on adults to make peace.Development (2000) 43, 40–45. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110115
