Acknowledgements

It would be impossible to thank adequately all those whose advice, encouragement and support have helped in the writing of this book. This impossibility is, in part, because so many have been involved. Further, some of those involved have requested anonymity (due to their official positions, e.g. in government or in the armed forces). The latter will, I hope, know that I am most grateful for their contributions.

In any event, it is a great pleasure to express publicly my appreciation of those who do not require anonymity.

These are, firstly, my funders, the Nuffield Foundation, without whose assistance this work would not have been possible. I am particularly indebted to Sharon Witherspoon (Deputy Director) and others connected with this Foundation, whose perceptive comments helped to narrow the focus of what was, initially, an even more ambitious project! I am also grateful to Save the Children Sweden, and to the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation for providing a substantial part of the funding for my earlier, related work on child civilians.

Next, I would like to thank my colleagues at the London School of Economics (LSE), and particularly the Law Department and the Development Studies Institute, both of which provided me, at different times, with an office, equipment, secretarial assistance, and the stimulus of a lively intellectual environment. I owe thanks, too, to a number of the LSE librarians, individual secretaries and students, who all helped with various tasks on occasion.

In the course of this project, I was fortunate to work consecutively with three very able Research Assistants, all PhD students. These were: Monica Feria-Tinta, Chitra Massey and, most recently, Claire LaHovary. I am particularly grateful to the latter, who assisted me for the longest period, and with great competence throughout.

Invaluable assistance was also provided by the 12 individuals, with a wide range of relevant experience, who agreed to act as my Advisory Committee for this work. These were, in the UK: Dr Liz Barnett, Dr Chaloka Beyani, Professor Christine Chinkin, Professor Christopher Greenwood, Dr James Putzel (all based at LSE), Major General (Retired) Tony Rogers, and Sarah Uppard (Save the Children-UK). Other members were: Patrick Brugger (Head of the Unit for Relations with Armed and Security Forces, International Committee of the Red Cross), Ilene Cohn (former staff member for the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General on Children and Armed Conflict), Una McCauley (former West Africa Regional Advisor on Children in Armed Conflict and Displacement, Save the Children Sweden), Major Bruce Oswald (Australian Defence Force), and Professor Katarina Tomasevski (UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education).
