Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0954162420, Paperback)Book Description Hundreds of thousands of children are in military service of one sort or another throughout the world, and many are used for front-line fighting in internal and regional conflicts.. "It is immoral that adults should want children to fight their wars for them... There is simply no excuse, no acceptable argument for arming children....." Archbishop Desmond Tutu This report documents child recruitment policies and practices in 196 countries and territories. It reviews trends and developments related to the use of child soldiers since the publication of the Coalition's last global report in 2001, and highlights failures - by the international community, governments and armed groups - to protect children's fundamental human rights. The report contains regional overviews for each continent. For each country there are details on all or some of the following: basic statistics; national recruitment legislation and practice; roles of under-18's in armed conflicts; treaty ratification; notes on recent changes relating to international standards, forces and conscription; details of armed groups operating in the country; roles of girls and boys in forces; information sources including websites. There is also: a summary of selected international treaties; text of the Optional Protocol; statistical tables; notes on methodology, terms and definitions; a glossary of frequently used abbreviations.
