More than ever, the network is striving to bridge scholarship around children born of war with practice. This, we believe, will help stimulate the gradual process of setting agendas to create much needed robust and responsive policies and innovations aimed at addressing the untold plight of children born of war.  We are gradually building links with a cross-section of transnational researchers and activists to drum up discourses around this category. This approach continues to blur the line between academic research and the word of activism. Thus, academic research projects targeting this category are now increasingly embracing links with lobby platforms especially in Europe.
