Escaping victimhood

£30.00

Product description

In the aftermath of violent conflict, a society seeking to rebuild its future needs to consider the interests and needs of its young generation, and these young people need to participate in the process. Yet, trapped in a state of protracted victimhood, children and youth are too often overlooked in post-conflict peacebuilding. In Escaping Victimhood, a diverse group of researchers and scholar-practitioners working in academia, nongovernmental, and international organizations examine the proactive roles of girls and boys in promoting security for themselves and their families. The authors provide examples of initiatives to help young people escape the traps of victimhood and voicelessness and actively engage in rebuilding their communities and nations, and they examine international and national efforts to provide for the security of children and young people in post-conflict environments. The young post-war generation will become the next leaders, parents, and teachers, hence ensuring its active role in post-conflict peacebuilding today could help build a sustainable peace tomorrow.
