The Countering the Militarisation of Youth project seeks to identify and challenge the many ways in which young people around the world are encouraged to accept the military and military values as normal, and worthy of their uncritical support. Militarisation is a process which goes far beyond overt recruitment. It includes the presence and influence of the armed forces in education, public military events such as parades, and military-themed video games.This website is one is a series of efforts to bring together a network of those already working on countering the militarisation of youth in their own settings, and to encourage more people to take action on these issues.
