The UK’s Role in Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict

Dmytro Chupryna and Chloe Skinner, Airwars respective Deputy Director and UK based Conflict Researcher and Advocacy Officer, are attending a roundtable discussion on ‘The UK’s Role in Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict’, hosted by Save the Children and the Humanitarian Policy Group at the Overseas Development Institute. The discussion will be attended by representatives from the FCO, DFID, and the MOD, as well as many of our partner NGOs, including Every Casualty, Amnesty International, Crisis Action and Action on Armed Violence. While the FCO is in process of updating the existing Protection of Civilians (PoC) strategy, the aims of the discussion are to build cross-government and civil society support for the new strategy, and create space for the discussion of concrete steps toward a more comprehensive PoC strategy.
