CHILDREN, THE VICTIM OF VIOLENCE AND TERROR
We usually meet with information that shows violence in all forms committed against adults in world news of various media that inform about violence and terrorism. The tragic fates of children in these social conflicts are basically forgotten.
The substance of violence and terrorism is however the same; these are crimes that affect violently the fate of people and deform their lives and family and social relationships. Basically, these are conscious violent interventions in the fates of adults and children.
The fate of children is especially tragic for the reasons that these are defenceless beings tossing chaotically in the violent fates of adults. However, in case of children as victims of terrorism we distinguish between two approaches; on the part of adults who commit violence and terrorism against children and draw them into military, politic and ethnic conflicts on the one hand and the violence and terrorism that are committed by minors against minors when they are put by some criminals on the path of violence on the other hand.
The main mission of the “Intercontinental Exhibition of Renaissance Humanism” initiated by the World Union of Culture is to mobilize democratic forces in the world against crimes committed against children in the spirit of violence and terrorism. This mobilization of ours relates to various forms of violence, whether of a military nature or of an ethnic nature.
