Children and adolescents as orphans and street children are the most vulnerable victims of economic or armed wars and conflicts
The Current issue of the Clinical Social Work and Health Intervention presents a series of papers devoted to vulnerable children as a potential result of social pathology in adults-real or economic war, poverty, tribal racial and national conflicts worldwide.
Post-traumatic stress syndrome may be the shortest name for this topic but not complete…Victims of war are observed not only in the Middle East, e.g. Syria, Iraq and Yemen or Afganistan..Those are victims of war with arms, but we see alot of fighting in the field of economy, interpersonal relations, tribes, streets, even in families. About one half of the parents who are alive, but due to interpersonal conflicts or poverty, their children are on streets in developing, and in orphanages in developed countries. Street children copy social pathology they see in adults, media (interpersonal) or „real,, wars and conflicts, armed or economic, cultural, social.
Therefore this issue presents result of social pathology including armed conflicts on both sides of the globe – in the developing Middle East Region suffering from 30 years lasting interstate religious or international wars, as well as social pathology in originaly ,,calm,,Europe, mainly the ,,new member states,, of the EU such as V4 members, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary and also in developing states of Sub-Saharan Africa (Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, as well as Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Myanmar, India etc )
Therefore, as seen from the spectrum of authors, the probem of orphans, street children, victims of war, is truly international. Children and adolescents suffer in the conflicts, but also copy what they have seen during all kinds of this Post-trauma stress in their future lives which affect not only their lives but also their future families. Therefore, stopping armed conflicts and bringing the children back to school from the battlefields, local or interstate, religious or tribal, economic or real, is a strategic role not only for their parents and school teachers, but for all of us….
