Abstract [en]

Children are often portrayed as defenseless victims of war. However, during war periods, issues concerning children’s agency are also brought to the fore. Based on media materials describing one country in war (Finland) and relief efforts from aneighbor country (Sweden) this article identifies both Finnish and Swedish children as committed to Finland’s cause in different ways. Discussing the issue of authenticity when it comes to children’s commitments, the article shows that children emerge both as agentic subjects and as objects of political propaganda. It argues that children’s commitment as represented in the Swedish media could function as propaganda pressuring adults to take action.
