Promoting Psychosocial Well-Being Among Children Affected by Armed Conflict and Displacement: Principles and Approaches
Interagency Network for Education in Emergencies
Save the Children began in the aftermath of the First World War and the Russian revolution to help refugee and displaced children across Europe. Since then, wars, especially civil wars, have increased: More than 50 of them were raging in 1995. A central feature of these conflicts is that 80-90 percent of the victims are civilians, most of them women and children (for historical reference).
