Socio-economic and environmental foundations for peace: What role for international law?
2 June 2021, 15:00-16:15 BST
Contemporary armed conflicts have become protracted, complex and urbanised with far-reaching socio-economic and environmental consequences. In Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Syria, Colombia, Yemen and other parts of the world, populations have been affected by war for years on end and in some instances for decades. Deterioration of basic services and livelihoods, displacement, increase of hunger, and degradation of the environment and natural resources are among the dire socio-economic and environmental consequences of such conflicts.
