Child Soldiers, Slavery, and the Trafficking of Children

Decoding International Law

Susan Tiefenbrun

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the development of a culture of violence in many parts of the world, especially Africa, which has given rise to genocide, mass violence, and child soldiering. Child soldiering is a variant of human trafficking that is one of the worst human rights violations as it rises to the level of slavery (a universal crime). The recruitment of a child (a person under age eighteen) for the purpose of participation in armed conflict is considered trafficking in persons.

Keywords:   Africa, child soldiers, child soldiering, human trafficking, violence against women, human rights violations
