A Dangerous Refuge: Ongoing child recruitment by the Kachin Independence Army

This report seeks to identify the processes of recruitment, training, deployment and use of child soldiers in the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), one of seven non-state armed groups in Myanmar. Child Soldiers International confirms, from research carried out in June 2014 for this report, that recruitment of children is ongoing.

Recommendations are provided to the KIA, the Myanmar Government, the UN Country Team, and the UN Security Council for the cessation of recruitment of children and their reintegration into society.
