COVID-19 in Conflict: What to Expect? And What Can be Done?

In conflict-affected countries, healthcare systems have been neglected or destroyed, basic services such as water are often lacking, and civilians are already living under extreme stress, often in crowded conditions. As the pandemic spreads, the consequences will likely be devastating, and the UN Secretary General has recently called for a global ceasefire.

Join us for a discussion on the pandemic in conflict, responsibilities of warring parties under international humanitarian law, and how advocates are working to promote both peace and health; with Azadeh Moaveni (International Crisis Group), Cordula Droege (International Committee of the Red Cross), Farea Al-Muslimi (Sanaa Center for Strategic Studies), and Kate Kizer (Win Without War); moderated by Priyanka Motaparthy (Columbia).
