Kasey Tyler and Shelly Whitman

This chapter reflects on children associated with armed groups or forces as a unique category of migrant children. The protection of these children under international humanitarian law, international human rights law and international principles is examined. The effectiveness of these legal protections, and the mechanism that has been developed by the international community to discourage states and non-government forces from recruiting children into combat or support roles, are also discussed . The two authors reflect on their experience in South Sudan to explore the challenges that exist in actualizing international protections in the context of ongoing conflict.
