Call for Articles: Examples of Youth Militarisation in Different Countries/Regions
War Resisters' International is organising the third International Week of Action Against the Militarisation of Youth this year. The week is going to take place between November 14-20 with the participation of groups and individuals from different countries. See our call out here.
Alongside events and actions, this year we are also planning to share examples of youth militarisation, and resistance to it, from different countries via a series of articles. The articles will be published on our website www.antimili-youth.net. If you'd like to write to us about your country and/or community please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your article may give a general framework of the issues you find critical in regard to youth militarisation and "recruitment of minds and bodies" in your country. Alternatively, it can focus on a particular subject that you'd like to highlight on the normalisation of violence and war among the young in your community.
If you're running a particular campaign against the militarisation of youth and/or military-recruitment, we would also be glad to receive pieces on your campaign and publish on our website.
The pieces should be between 800-1500 words, and be sent no later than November 4.
