Global Civil Society Forum on protecting civilians from explosive weapons

Survivors of armed conflict, activists, and civil society organizations, alongside representatives of governments, UN agencies, and the International Committee of the Red Cross, will gather in Dublin on 17 November 2022 at a Global Civil Society Forum on limiting the suffering caused by the use of explosive weapons in populated areas. The Forum will be hosted by the International Network on Explosive Weapons (INEW) and Dóchas, the Irish network for international development and humanitarian organisations.

The aim of the Forum is to hear testimonies from survivors of armed conflict and other experts on the severe humanitarian impact of explosive weapons on cities, towns, and other populated areas, and to explore how to attain the greatest possible protection of civilians from the political declaration on explosive weapons.
