Main sequences: In the past ten years, much progress has been made in recognizing the importance of demobilizing child soldiers and reintegrating them with society. As UNICEF reviews the recommendations of the landmark U.N. “Machel Report” on children and armed conflict, the stories of former soldiers are much needed testimony.
