Youth and Conflict: A Brief Review of Available Literature

Summary

Drawing on extensive archival and internet research, this short analytical literature review aims to illuminate key themes, trends, and promising prospects for war-affected youth and the programs that aim to assist them.

The review introduces debates over how the youth category has been defined and whether youth should be seen primarily as passive victims of warfare, active threats to peace, or as resilient survivors. Analysis of programmatic responses reveals several widely shared program themes related to class, gender, advocacy, participation, work, and holism. The review also discusses the six main program areas emerging from the literature: vocational training, reproductive health, basic skills, peace education, empowerment, and psycho-social programming. Finally, it makes seven recommendations related enhancing programming.
