Yet when we examine the first-person accounts of former child soldiers, we find that they see themselves as responsible for their actions. It is tempting to think that their feelings are simply misguided or a result of their trauma. I argue instead that child soldiers, like adult ex-combat soldiers, suffer moral injury and their feelings of responsibility are part of the process of redrawing the boundaries of their moral selves.\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003c/span\u003e\r\n\u003cp style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 11px; color: #333333; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-variant-ligatures: normal; orphans: 2; widows: 2;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-size: 14px; font-family: \u0027Times New Roman\u0027;\"\u003eFaculty lectures provide an opportunity for faculty to present recent or ongoing research to the Swarthmore Community.
