The international community's efforts to halt child soldiering have yielded some successes. But this pernicious practice persists. It may shift locally, but it endures globally.

This article follows a criminal investigation for recruitment of child soldiers, by asking the following questions: how does one find child soldiers? How does one bring them onto the judicial stage? The article explores the different moments that marked the investigation by the Office of the Prosecutor in the first case brought before the International Criminal Court in The Hague, that of Thomas Lubanga Dyilo. After describing the successive stages of the investigation, the article analyses the conditions under which former child soldiers testified before the ICC. The different moments that marked these legal proceedings bring to light the instability of the category of child soldier and the uncertainty that regularly threatens the labour of judicial elucidation. Since the early s, the soldiering experiences of children and youth have become a major subject of anthropological research. The dominant image conveyed in these arenas is that of child victims — vulnerable, passive figures forcibly recruited into armed groups to serve as bodyguards, cooks and porters, and sometimes even trained in military discipline and weapons handling.
Drumbl Richard J. Wilson bio Mark A. In the face of world-wide media attention, Khadr's case became a kind of Kabuki Theater, with Khadr cast as a stock character pulled between two polarizing images. To the prosecution, he was cast as the irredeemable bad seed, born into an Al Qaeda family and the inevitable product of his environment and heritage. He was a perfect fit within what Professor Mark Drumbl calls the "demon and bandit" image: "irredeemable, baleful, and sinister. The image of the child soldier as a "faultless passive victim" appears early, but resonates throughout Drumbl's newest book, Reimagining Child Soldiers in International Law and Policy. Reimagining Child Soldiers seeks, among other goals, to deconstruct the dominant narrative of the faultless passive victim and to recast the child soldier in more nuanced narratives.

Reimagining Child Soldiers in International Law and Policy
Leena Grover, Mark A. The poster child for the international movement to end child soldiering is a dark-skinned pre-pubescent boy with an AK slung over his shoulder, a victim of abuse who goes on to victimize members of his community through acts of atrocity, a weapon of the adult who forcibly recruited him and completely devoid of agency. Mark A. Drumbl, professor of law and director of the Transnational Law Institute at Washington and Lee University, aims in his book to dismantle this image and asks whether it accurately informs international legal and policy responses to this practice. Accordingly, adult recruiters and users of child soldiers are the exclusive targets of international criminal prosecutions, while the prosecution of child soldiers for the commission of atrocities is discouraged. Further, transitional justice mechanisms are designed in a fairly uniform manner and often encourage local communities to forgive child soldiers en masse and unconditionally because it is assumed that their conduct as part of an armed force or group can never be voluntary.

This book argues that accountability for extraordinary atrocity crimes should not uncritically adopt the methods and assumptions of ordinary liberal criminal law. Criminal punishment designed for common criminals is a response to mass atrocity and Although child soldiers have received considerable media and policy attention, they remain poorly understood and inadequately protected. This Research Handbook addresses this troubling gap by offering a reflective and nuanced review of the complex
