Just a short message to let you know, and invite you to, an event where I will be speaking on the 1st of June. The event is titled “Being young in times of conflict: Readings from the Central African Republic“. As the organizers write: “While rebel-leaders and combatant- voices tend to reach our media sources, the voices of ‘ordinary’ young people have difficulty being heard both within the country and abroad”.
In addition, today the children’s rights index 2017 has come out today. This index ranks how countries adhere to and are equipped to improve children’s rights. CAR has been ranked LAST IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
So, even more reason to take an interest in the young people of this country!! You can read about, and register for the event here.
