Journal History

Allons-y was first published in 2016 as a journal for graduate student papers on children and armed conflict, paired with commentaries by experts in the field. Two subsequent volumes of this format were published in 2017 and 2019. In 2020, based on a need identified in the field of children, peace and security, the Dallaire Initiative transitioned the journal to reflect a focus on the Vancouver Principles on Peacekeeping and the Prevention of the Recruitment and Use of Child Soldiers.
