About the Author:

R. Charli Carpenter is professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is author of Innocent Women and Children: Gender, Norms, and the Protection of Civilians.

Review:

Carpenter s excellent collected volume ... establishes children born of war as the rightful subjects of human rights law and practice.... [She] has given us a powerful framework for thinking about and acting in the name of [these] children one that may well inspire an entirely new field, and do a great deal of good in the process. --Journal of Genocide Research

This excellently edited volume, with its rich case studies and thoughtful recommendations, is a cutting edge work that will attract the interest of academics and policymakers working in the humanitarian field. --W. Andy Knight, University of Alberta

An important and unique book that anyone interested in children s rights should put on their required reading list. --Joyce Apsel, New York University

Book Description Kumarian Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Much has been written about women who have survived wartime sexual violence, but this is the first book to consider how to protect the children born as a result. It presents case-studies integrating what is known about these children's 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 granted to the rest of the community's children. The contributors to this collection have the stated goal of using their research to advocate for greater representation of this group in international human rights law 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. Seller Inventory # AAN9781565492370
