War without limits: Reducing violence against civilians in contemporary conlicts


Contemporary armed conflicts are often waged beyond the traditional battlefield and the lives of civilians are affected by increasing levels of violence. Our experts explain why conflicts have become more complex, why lasting peace is difficult to achieve and how civilians can be better protected.

This podcast was produced as part of the project “War without limits: Advancing approaches to reducing civilian harm in contemporary armed conflicts” and was financially supported by the Federal Foreign Office.
