Youngest Recruits is an unflinching examination of the complex motivations that drive Ivoirian children in and out of armed groups. Drawing on firsthand experience with child soldiers, Magali Chelpi-Den Hamer argues that the popular narrative about children’s limited agency is insufficient to explain their participation in violent conflicts. Rather she explores in detail the pre- to postwar trajectories of child and adolescent recruits in order to show that even the youngest exercise some degree of reflection and agency when enlisting into the armed forces. In addition to shedding light on an area of great cultural concern, the author invites readers to reflect on the mixed impact of humanitarian interventions that attempt to reintegrate these children into society.

Book Description Pallas Publications, Netherlands, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The participation of children and adolescents in violent conflicts is the gloomy reality of many wars and C�te d Ivoire is no exception. Despite a lack of empirical evidence, much of the literature on children s involvement in violent groups emphasizes their limited agency when they enlist into armed forces and during wartime. This monograph challenges such a preconceived idea by exploring in detail the pre-war, war, and post-war trajectories of some adolescent recruits. It also reflects on the impact of external interventions in facilitating children s reinsertion to civil life. Clearly, child soldiering cannot be reduced to coerced recruits and there is a multiplicity of patterns that emerge out of specific contexts. Youngest Recruits shows that even the youngest can exercise some degree of reflection and agency when enlisting into armed forces, and that short-term interventions only play a marginal role in easing their lives.
