Book launch ‘On civilian harm’

In today’s conflicts, civilians continue to be harmed in large numbers: they may lose loved ones, become injured, lose their homes or sources of income, or suffer potentially long-term psychological trauma. Preventing and understanding civilian harm in its broadest sense, as encompassing more than merely the ‘wounded and dead’, is vital in the practice of protecting civilians from the negative effects of violent conflict.

On June 17, 2021, PAX’s Protection of Civilians team kindly invites you to participate in the launch of its book ‘On civilian harm’. The book directs attention to the broader negative impact that violent conflict and international interventions can have on civilians. Join us for the launch, where the authors and various civilian harm experts will discuss civilian harm in contemporary conflict, the need for and the relevance of the publication, and the lessons the book offers for security actors, policy makers and practitioners around the world.

You can watch and participate in the book launch via the livestream from the Bleyenberg studio in The Hague, the Netherlands. You can register for this event via the registration button.
