Chloë Gotterson

Chloë Gotterson currently works for Saferworld, a non-governmental organisation focused on conflict prevention. Prior to this she was based in Colombia, where she researched conflict and development issues. She holds a MA in Geopolitics and Grand Strategy, with a focus on new security challenges and emerging powers.

It is evident that there is still a long way to go before the practice of child recruitment into the armed forces is fully eradicated from the country.
