Impact of armed conflict on children: the Sudan perspective
The nature of armed conflict has changed since the end of the cold war in the 90s. Nowadays, armed conflicts mostly confine the lives of civilians, over half of whom are children (Steven Hick, 2001, P.106).
As Sudan has entered the final and most critical year of its post-war transition period, the other countries comprising the Horn and central Africa are on the alert. Southern Sudan's self-determination referendum, scheduled for January 2011, could result in partition of the country and may possibly prompt the resurgence of violent North-South conflict. In any case, the emergence of an independent South would have profound regional implications.
