1. Armed Conflict

Conflict is a “natural” environment to nourish and possibly encourage the recruitment of the child soldiers. However, not every conflict  involves child soldiers, as stated by Tynes1. According to the scholar in most of the cases the “weak states, or developing countries in our understanding, are more vulnerable against the recruitment of child soldiers.  As such, “When a weak state is pulled into armed conflict, multiple variables increase the likelihood that youths will volunteer, or will be forcefully recruited to fight”1.
