World Vision International

World Vision commissioned research by Child Frontiers International, ‘No Choice’, to better understand children associate with armed groups. Featuring primary and secondary research from Central African Republic, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Condo, Iraq and South Sudan, this research helps us understand who  joins and why, by lifting up the voices and experiences of girls and boys from these countries. The report also proposes solutions to end child recruitment, especially for those children who are so surrounded by hardship that joining an armed force or group seems like the least bad of only terrible choices.
