Decolonizing childhood in international relations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Childhood is often invoked to convey meaning in global politics. Conjure up an image of the second Indochina (Vietnam) war of the 1960s and 1970s, the Ethiopian famine of the 1980s, the so-called diamond wars of the 1990s, the recent Syrian refugee crisis, or the conflict in Yemen and chances are you will recall a powerful image or statement regarding a child.
