Countering the Militarisation of Youth is War Resisters' International's answer to changes in military recruitment - the slow end of conscription. With these changes, the armed forces are increasingly competing on the job market, which - admittedly - is getting worse by the day in most countries, but nevertheless the recruitment of sufficient numbers of new soldiers is posing a challenge in most countries in Europe and North America (and beyond).
This programme is not final. But it gives an overview of the topics that will be discussed at the conference from 8-10 June 2012. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or suggestions.
