State representatives, international and civil society organisations will meet in Geneva from 6-8 April 2022 to resume negotiations (under Ireland’s leadership) on the international political declaration aimed at strengthening the protection of civilians arising from the use of explosive weapons in towns, cities and other populated areas.
INEW has published a detailed commentary on the latest declaration text, highlighting areas that have improved and underscoring the remaining areas that need strengthening.
In light of the new draft text, we have also updated our paper on the ‘10 elements for a successful political declaration’, available here.
We have also recorded a new episode of our ‘After the Bombing’ podcast, in which INEW’s Coordinator and Steering Committee members share views on the latest draft of the political declaration in preparation for the upcoming negotiations.
