Burundi: Child soldiers - the challenge of demobilisation
Military leaders have fuelled Burundi's 10 year armed conflict by recruiting and abducting children, destroying their childhood and their future. This report discusses the extent of child soldiering in Burundi and the process of demobilising child soldiers in the context of conflict, poverty and human rights violations. The report also examines the role of the Government of Burundi, the leaders of all current and former armed political groups, and the international community in the demobilisation process.
