"Our world. Views from the field." opinion survey – Part 2: behaviour during armed conflict

12-08-2009 Feature

A large majority of people surveyed across eight countries say there should be limits to what combatants are allowed to do in the course of fighting, and that civilians should be left alone. However, less than half of those surveyed were aware of the Geneva Conventions and among them, only a thin majority believe the Conventions limit the suffering of civilians during wartime. These facts were revealed by the latest findings of an ICRC survey "Our world. Views from the field," published to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Geneva Conventions.
