Recent years have witnessed a significant growth of interest in
the consequences of political violence and displacement for the
young. However, when speaking of OC childrenOCO commentators have
often taken the situation of those in early and middle childhood as
representative of all young people under eighteen years of age. As
a consequence, the specific situation of adolescents negotiating
the processes of transition towards social adulthood amidst
conditions of violence and displacement is commonly overlooked.
Years of Conflict provides a much-needed corrective. Drawing upon
perspectives from anthropology, psychology, and media studies as
well as the insights of those involved in programmatic
interventions, it describes and analyses the experiences of older
children facing the challenges of daily life in settings of
conflict, post-conflict and refuge. Several authors also reflect
upon methodological issues in pursuing research with young people
in such settings. The accounts span the globe, taking in Liberia,
Afghanistan, South Africa, Peru, Jordan, UK/Western Europe, Eastern
