160 years after Henri Dunants Book on the Battle of Solferino, which became fundamental for modern humanitarianism, Dr Hugo Slim wrote a reflection on new warfare, cyber wars and their implications for a much needed reform of the humanitarian sector.
Right after Hugo Slim had finished his work, the escalation of the armed conflict in Ukraine has started and kicked off the debate about a “Zeitenwende” even beyond the security and humanitarian issues discussed in this timely publication.
To mark the launch of the book in Berlin, German Red Cross and CHA invite to a panel discussion about Hugo Slim’s theses and its implications for humanitarian action in the light of the Ukraine war with:
Facilitated by Ralf Südhoff, Director Centre for Humanitarian Action and with opening remarks by Christof Johnen, Director of International Cooperation at German Red Cross.
In person while seats are limited.
