Children's understanding of the war in Iraq: Views from Britain and Bosnia.
International Journal of Children's Spirituality, 14(1) pp. 17–30.

Sixty-one children (aged 9-17) from the United Kingdom (31) and Bosnia (30) were interviewed about the war in Iraq. Significant differences emerged in their views of the war. The Bosnian children were more affected by the Iraq War, more aware of who is involved in it, had different views about its causes, viewed the consequences of the war with greater gravity, and expressed a greater desire to end war and have peace. Two factors which might account for these differences - recent Bosnian history and the nature of media representations of the war in the two countries - are discussed.
