Abstract

The number of children who live in conflict zones is staggering: eighty-one percent live in a conflict-ridden state –1.8 billion souls. Yet when scholars discuss children, media and conflict, they tend to focus on peace-zone children and their engagement with news about conflicts. For www.parenting.digital, Yael Warshel discusses the need to shift the focus to young people in conflict zones and recognize the important role media may play in mediating and moderating conflict zones.
