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

Hans Rouw (Program Lead Protection of Civilians at PAX), opened day 1 of the conference (theme: National Contributions to PoC) by presenting the main PoC priorities, challenges and opportunities and announcing the full program together with Saba Azeem (Project Lead Human Security Survey) and Wilbert van der Zeijden (Team Coordinator Protection of Civilians) and welcoming messages from PAX partners in Iraq, South Sudan and the US.
