In August, 2014 fellow and McGill professor of social work Myriam Denov published a new book co-edited with Bree Akeson. Children Affected by Armed Conflict (Columbia University Press) is "drawing from empirical studies in eleven conflict-ridden countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Colombia, Uganda, Palestine, Somalia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, and South Sudan. [It] crosses cultures and contexts to capture a range of perspectives on the realities of armed conflict and its aftermath for children."

Myriam Denov

Professor Denov works on the conditions and the prospects of children born of rape in Northern Uganda and other conflict zones. Grounded in one-on-one work with former child soldiers and with the soldiers’ own children, her Trudeau project will inform Canada’s programs for youth and families attempting to resettle after surviving war.
