Urbanization of Conflict

Conflicts increasingly take place in urban areas, often resulting in devastating humanitarian consequences for civilians and civilian objects. Military and civilians/civilian objects are usually intermingled in cities presenting its own challenges for the application of IHL. This month's theme focuses on issues relating to fighting in urban centres and invites submissions relating to the disruption of services, displacement, the protection of civilians against the effects of urban warfare, the use of explosive weapons in populated areas, and sieges.
