Throughout history, Children Born of War (CBOW) have been born as a consequence of both sexual violence and of more or less consensual relationships in war and conflict. Nevertheless, little is known about this group of children; although, evidence suggests that their basic human rights are violated and their integration into the post-conflict society is challenged. It is becoming increasingly recognized at both the academic and the political level that this group of children deserves and needs targeted attention. In this policy brief, we will outline some of the key challenges faced by Children Born of War and suggest avenues for further research.
