(Child Soldiers International) – On June 27, it will be one year since the Myanmar government made a commitment to the United Nations to stop recruiting and using children as soldiers. The action plan, which was signed after five years of negotiation, marked both an acknowledgement of a longstanding problem and a willingness to correct the practice. However, there are signs that the Myanmar military’s commitment to ending underage recruitment has yet to end this practice. The Tatmadaw has continued to recruit and use children since it signed the action plan, although in lower numbers than those previously reported.
