In an increasingly urban world, armed conflict and violence has also been urbanizing. Today, approximately 50 million people are affected by urban armed conflict, leading to mass displacement, destruction of critical infrastructure and interrupted or inadequate provision of basic public services.

Join us for the launch of the “War in Cities” edition of the International Review of the Red Cross with Dr Eric Jensen, Law Professor, Brigham Young University, Isabel Robinson, Australian Red Cross Adviser, Humanitarian and Medical Sector and the Managing Editor, Ellen Policinski, our guest from ICRC Geneva. They will address issues such as the effects of explosive weapons in urban settings and how the international community should approach the issue of “War in Cities”.
