Adolescents and War

Robert J. McCouch

Oxford University Press

Given that there has been very little explicit attention to policy concerns in the research literatures on youth and political violence, this chapter uses a policy lens to focus on existing empirical data in an attempt to understand the relationship between young Bosnians' wartime experiences and their post-conflict behaviors. It also documents some of the socioemotional or psychosocial characteristics whereby the effect of violence exposure was transmitted to these negative outcomes. Important policy implications are evident.
