As an annual publication, The War Report provides an overview of contemporary trends in current armed conflicts, including key international humanitarian law (IHL) and policy issues that have arisen and require attention.
Aimed at students, academics, experts, journalists and diplomats as well as NGOs and international organizations, The War Report also lists current armed conflicts where IHL applies and focuses on selected situations.
This new version of The War Report is a follow-up to the Geneva Academy’s project published as books by Oxford University Press.
The War Report provides the background for our new annual Conference on Current Issues in Armed Conflicts, co-organized with the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex. It provides a space for experts and practitioners, diplomats, academics, and civil society representatives to discuss the legal and policy issues that have arisen in the past and current year in relation to armed conflicts situations.
