This paper is a summary of the trends and issues identified through surveys of the impacts of conflict on children in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh and the Chittagong Hill Tracts. This research was intended to identify existing information on war-affected and displaced children in these countries as well as the organisations that are working on these issues. It analyses both the macro conditions that contribute to political violence as well as the micro level impacts of these conflicts on children. Moreover, it points to knowledge gaps and methodological shortcoming. The findings will be used to establish priority areas for capacity-building and programmatic intervention, and key issues for policy and advocacy.
