Abstract:
Purpose: To reveal and discuss the physical, social and psychological impacts of armed conflict on children. Background: Nepal, a Himalayan kingdom, is a South Asian landlocked country that is sandwiched between two large countries; China to the north and India to the south, west and east. It, the country of Mt. Everest, is a country with varied socio-cultural and economical status. After restoration of the democracy in 1990, many people came with lots of hope but due to the unstable political environment, corruption and unremarkable developmental progress around the country, there is political dissatisfaction amongst some of the people who wanted, in their words, holistic change in the nation. Therefore they could not join the mainstream of the nation and gun violence erupted in 13 February 1996. As a result, a brutal internal armed conflict between the security forces and Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) rebels started and now it has passed 10 years during which 341 children and about 12000 people died. Similarly, 24,408 and about 228 children have been injured and arrested by the state security force respectively. Design: This study depends on secondary data collected from Governmental Organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations and International Governmental Organizations' records, magazine and newspaper articles as well as news clips. Conclusions will be based on statistical analysis and graphical presentations. Results: This study showed that the impacts of armed conflict on children fall into different categories. These are Physical Impacts: Death, Suicide, Injuries, Rape and diseases; Social Impacts: Arrest/Abduction, Beggar, Porter, Child Labor, Recruiting and Educational effect, displacement; and finally, Psychological Impacts: Fear, Bad dreams, Anger, Loneliness, Playing games, Police and Maoist. Significance: Children who are the future of every nation are facing physical, social and psychological problems due the ongoing conflict. Whenever this goes on, children cannot grow up normally and have their all around development negatively affect. This endangers the future welfare of both their generation as well as the nation in general. Therefore every one should have very deep and positive thinking about children and their rights.
