This study explores the use of children as terrorists and the organizational structure of one of the world’s most feared terrorist groups - Hamas. Specifically, this paper will examine child terrorists within the terrorist group Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Sri Lanka by first developing a base understanding of what is considered a child terrorist, examining the ongoing situation and conflict in Sri Lanka, the reasons children are being used in Sri Lanka, how Sri Lanka child soldiers are recruited, trained and indoctrinated, and finally the policies and international law enacted to combat the continued use of children in terrorist organizations.
