The Child That Bombs Built
The increasing emphasis on children in the human rights literature, coupled with the impact that terrorism has on many children's lives, demonstrates the need for research into the interface between children, terrorism, and human rights. This article does so by examining the impact that terrorism, and political violence more generally, has on children, and by then outlining the existing international legal/human rights framework vis-à-vis the child. It argues that, for a variety of reasons, the existing framework remains too adult-centered in its focus, a factor that may have direct policy consequences in terms of post-conflict reconciliation.
