Abstract:The child as a political actor and conflict stakeholder (but not as a victim) and the political significance of children are usually ignored. This collective volume uses case studies from Angola, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Mozambique and Uganda to illustrate the roles of children and youth in war and change in Africa, from the child soldier to the youth activist, and suggests that the 'youth factor' is an important dimension of security analysis.
