This study addresses the legal status of children during armed conflicts, where the children have rights only without duties or obligations, in light of international and national legislation.

The study highlights some mechanisms that protect children’s rights during armed conflicts and the effectiveness of international efforts to reintegrate or rehabilitate children, victims of armed conflict.

The study is divided into two main topics:

The first topic addresses the definition of the concept of “child” in law.

The second topic addresses the repercussions of armed conflicts on the child and the effectiveness of his rehabilitation and reintegration into society.
