CHIBOW (Children Born of War) is an H2020 Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN), supporting a new generation of researchers to advance our knowledge and understanding of the lived experiences of children born of war in a variety of 20th century conflict and post-conflict situations.
The physical and social impact of armed conflict on children is immense; particularly so, if these children are associated with the “enemy”. Overwhelming evidence suggests that children born of war, i.e. children fathered by foreign soldiers and born to local mothers, have been and continue to be a major obstacle to successful integration of both their mothers and themselves into post-conflict societies.
This short film provides viewers with an insight into the research of the CHIBOW Initial Training Network.
This second film focuses on the accomplishments of the project and the impact the CHIBOW network had and will have in the future.
If you're interested in knowing more about the research of the network's Early Stage Researchers, our first film is available on our youtbe channel.
