Call for Papers: From ”War Children” to ”IS Children”: Comparative Perspectives on European Children Born of War

International Workshop at Lund University, May 10th-12th, 2023.

The study of Children Born of War (CBOW) has made significant advances in recent years within a wide range of national contexts and disciplines. Building on these foundations, this workshop seeks to strengthen the comparative scholarship in the field. CBOW may face multiple forms of legal, social, gendered, or ethno-national discrimination. Comparative approaches to different communities and perspectives on children born of war can help us understand these overlapping vulnerabilities better—not least because the changes and continuities between distinct contexts enable us to assess how the respective cases build on, or re-configure, notions of nation, childhood, and children’s rights.
