The Dallaire Institute of Children, Peace and Security aims to address the problem of child soldiers around the world by empowering those in the security sector. This is why the Dallaire Institute, which is part of Dalhousie University, will now have a dedicated base in Uruguay that will function as its nerve centre for the region. 

Dalhousie signed an agreement last month with the Uruguayan Ministry of National Defense on behalf of the institute to launch the Latin America Centre of Excellence for Children, Peace and Security.
