Protecting Humanity in War: Recommendations for Congressional Action

Resulting from growing concerns about the scale and severity of human suffering in armed conflicts worldwide, InterAction launched these recommendations for Congress to curtail harm to civilians resulting from U.S. military operations and security partnerships. These recommendations identify the type of legislative action by the U.S. Congress that would achieve positive outcomes to better protect civilians in situations of armed conflict, and were developed in consultation with a group of humanitarian NGOs convened by InterAction, with additional input from other subject matter experts.
