Launch of the EuroWARCHILD project

What does it mean to be a child born of war?

European Children Born of War (EuroWARCHILD) is the first research project to examine different groups of war children in the European context, across conflicts, security settings and generations. The focus of the project will be on children born of war in Norway, Denmark, Germany and Bosnia and Herzegovina, with additional studies that focus on Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Yezidi children and children born by European foreign fighters to ISIS/Daesh.

The EuroWARCHILD project launch will be held on Wednesday 1 June from 9:30 to 12:30 at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo.

This project launch brings together European children born of war, scholars, and practitioners to discuss what it means to grow up as a child born of war. This is one of the core questions that the new and comprehensive EuroWARCHILD project aims to answer.

The project is hosted by the Centre of Gender Research (STK) at the University of Oslo, with the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security (PRIO GPS) as a collaborative partner. The project is funded through a Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) from 2021-2026.
