oa Focus on Arms in Africa - Southern Sudan : child soldiers or Armed Civilians?

 

Abstract

In 2002, under a demobilisation programme carried out by Save the Children-Sweden, 562 child soldiers in southern Sudan were released and reunited with their families. This was the first of a series of demobilizations of children who form part of various civil defence organisations charged with protecting communities and their resources in the region. These are not children directly involved in the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), or any "regular" armed force, but rather armed child civilians.
