This fall, join General Roméo Dallaire and world experts in PTSD, children’s rights, war crimes, humanitarian law, and peacekeeping for a series of important conversations about leadership and moral dilemma during times of conflict and crisis. How do leaders sustain moral codes in times of adversity? How do they cope with the impact of war on the battlefield, in UN leadership, in criminal courts, and at home? How do leaders find repair following moral injury?

This conversation series is free of charge, and open to researchers, students, and other interested parties.


We are thrilled to announce our new podcast.

Children Peace and Security is a new podcast series produced by the Dallaire Institute for Children, Peace and Security.

Producers bring together subject-matter experts on the recruitment and use of children in conflicts, individual testimonies, and all those interested in ending the recruitment and use of children in violence through in-depth interviews and storytelling.

Dallaire Institute guests explore new ideas on everything from training, advocacy and new research findings to help prevent the recruitment and use of children.

Vancouver Principles

At the Vancouver Principles International Review Workshop, the Dallaire Institute worked with the Government of Canada and over 75 experts from across the world to refine the guidance that will help transform political commitments into concrete action to prevent the recruitment and use of child soldiers.
