Sexual Violence As a Weapon of War?
* Presents case-studies integrating what is known about these childrenÃ¢ÂÂs whereabouts, status, and needs in different country contexts, and theoretical essays considering the human security dimensions of this issue for the first time
Born of War examines the human rights of children born of wartime rape and sexual exploitation in conflict zones worldwide. Detailing the multiple impacts of armed conflict on these children's survival, protection and membership rights, the case studies suggest that these children constitute a particularly vulnerable category in conflict zones. They often face risks such as discrimination, infanticide, loss of health care, education and other rights guaranteed to all children under international law.
The contributors to this collection have the stated goal of using their research to advocate for greater consideration of this group in international human rights discourse and practice where their experiences have so far been ignored. A wide variety of case studies show that every community responds to these children in different ways. The exploration into why this is so reveals much that contemporary humanitarianism will find valuable.
