In this talk, Anne de Graaf reflects on her own experiences in conflict-ridden areas and addresses the importance of listening to those often overlooked: the children. She draws a link between voice and violence, calling on the audience to listen to young people and everyone—even better.
Anne de Graaf has travelled to conflict areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe documenting the stories and experiences of young people. Several of her books, over 80 in number with over 5 million copies sold, are based on these interviews and expose readers to another side of conflict that is often ignored in the bigger picture: the children.
