War: The Impact on Minority and Indigenous Children

1 November 1997

While children who are members of minority and indigenous communities suffer discrimination at the hands of the majority community, in today’s armed conflicts – where most are fought internally, pitching one group against another – this discrimination frequently turns to violence, with such children seen as ‘legitimate targets’ despite the wealth of international law to the contrary.–Please note that the terminology in the fields of minority rights and indigenous peoples’ rights has changed over time. MRG strives to reflect these changes as well as respect the right to self-identification on the part of minorities and indigenous peoples. At the same time, after over 50 years’ work, we know that our archive is of considerable interest to activists and researchers. Therefore, we make available as much of our back catalogue as possible, while being aware that the language used may not reflect current thinking on these issues.
