Live Launch Event | Characterisation of Explosive Weapons

 

On 6 February, the GICHD launched the Final Report on the Characterisation of Explosive Weapons. This publication is the result of a two-year research project to inform the ongoing discussions on the impact of explosive weapons in populated areas and to characterise explosive weapons encountered in contemporary conflicts.

The work was guided and advised by a group of 18 international experts and practitioners from the humanitarian, policy, advocacy and legal fields. On the day of the launch, a group of panelists came to the Maison de la paix in Geneva to debate key findings from the research and take questions. Watch the event in its entirety here.
