'Children Born of War: Past, Present and Future' is now published!
It is with great pleasure that we announce the publication of Children Born of War: Past, Present and Future. Edited by Professor Sabine Lee, Professor Heide Glaesmer and Dr Barbara Stelzl-Marx, this volume comprises a collection of contributions from members of the CHIBOW research and training network.
Including the work of CHIBOW’s Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) and mentors, this book explores the life experiences of children born of 20th century wars. The research is international in scope and therefore contains a variety of different issues analysed from interdisciplinary and intersectoral perspectives.
Its chapters weave together three interlinked themes. These include the ethical and methodological considerations associated with conducting research with people affected by conflict, particularly children born of war. Another dimension is the historical exploration of geopolitical issues not previously investigated. It also considers the psychological and social challenges faced by children born of war in post-conflict societies, through examples of stigmatisation and discrimination, and the shaping of identity in a context of contested memories of violence and war. This work highlights the social cost of conflict for children conceived in war who are associated with ‘enemy’ forces via their biological heritage.
