On December 1-3, 2020, the PAX Protection of Civilians Conference brought together a network of PoC partners on three key themes: People and Protection, National Contributions to PoC, and the Reverberating Effects of Civilian Harm.

On day 2 (theme: People & Protection), Saba Azeem (Project Lead Human Security Survey Iraq at PAX) facilitated an elaborate discussion on research done by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) regarding local understanding of the concept of human security. She is joined by Dylan O’Driscoll (Director of the SIPRI MENA Program), Virginie Baudais (Deputy Director of the SIPRI Sahel-West Africa Program), Shivan Fazil (Researcher at the SIPRI MENA Program), Shourjya Deb (Researcher at the SIPRI Sahel Program), and Amal Bourhous (Research Assistant at the SIRPI MENA Program).

The annual PAX PoC Conferences are organized by PAX’s PoC Team in partnership with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
