(Child Soldiers International) – Child Soldiers International conducted research in Kachin state in June 2014 and found evidence of ongoing child recruitment. While much of the recruitment is formally voluntary, ongoing coercive recruitment also takes place. Despite stating its commitment to comply with international law and stop the recruitment and use of children in hostilities, the KIA has not implemented this in practice. This report offers a set of recommendations, which, if implemented, would contribute to ending and preventing the practice of underage recruitment within the ranks of the KIA.
