Abstract

This article examines child witchcraft accusations. Specifically, it examines the conditions under which this occurs, why children are accused of witchcraft, and the forms of violence perpetrated towards victims. I will argue that because some of these children come from transnational communities, protecting them requires a response that incorporates government and non-governmental organizations working across international borders
