Civilians still represent the vast majority of victims in conflicts despite existing normative frameworks that are not always implemented on the ground. Moreover, new risks inherent to our modern societies accentuate the fragility of the most vulnerable populations, highlighting the crying need for a better collective response and reinforced coordination. This session will question the existing gap between regulatory frameworks and reality on the ground. It will then explore how multilateral and non-state actors are mobilizing, cooperating and proposing often innovative solutions to protect civilians and strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in crisis prevention and response.
