In this first episode of our Children, Peace and Security Podcast, we started by looking at what we, the Dallaire Institute for Children, Peace and Security, have done over our first 10 years as an organization, to help end the recruitment and use of children in violence.

Our founder, General Romeo Dallaire and the Dallaire Institute’s Executive Director Dr Shelly Whitman spoke about the early days of the organization, the challenges and what they have achieved in the last 10yrs.

We were also fortunate to have South Sudanese Youth Advocate Anyieth Makuei Anyieth join us, to speak about his experience being used by an armed group at age 11.
