Global Child Soldier Database Launched

The first-ever online database on child soldiers launched this week, mapping the shocking scale of child exploitation by armed forces and non-state armed groups around the world. Developed by human rights group Child Soldiers International, the Child Soldiers World Index is the first comprehensive worldwide resource on child recruitment. The Index exposes the systematic abuse of child rights in many countries, including those often untouched by international media attention. Covering all 197 United Nations Member States, the Index, which includes more than 10,000 data points, will include authoritative data on national laws, policies and child recruitment practices worldwide.
