The Study on the Impact of Armed Conflict on Children convened its first consultation at the regional level in cooperation with the Economic Commission for Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during 17-19 April 1995. The consultation provided a pivotal opportunity for African policy makers and practitioners, independent experts, eminent civil, religious and cultural figures, representatives of African and non-African NGOs, representatives of UN organizations and other observers to assess and constructively respond to the catastrophic conditions to which children have been and continue to be exposed, both as targets and perpetrators of the atrocities of war that have taken place in the region. This publication contains the statement adopted at Addis Ababa consultation, a list of participants, the final program and list of background papers and working documents of the consultation.
