This is a weekly list of articles, podcasts, videos, blog posts, and other online items that have caught our eye here at Intercross. The list is curated from a humanitarian perspective on armed conflict, so you'll discover links to a variety of things - from articles on international humanitarian law and the use of lethal force, to stories about finding dignity and compassion in the midst of conflict.
A small disclaimer: Just because something is featured here, doesn't mean we endorse or agree with it, and the views expressed on the platforms we're highlighting don't necessarily reflect those of the ICRC.
It's a little bit eclectic and by no means exhaustive, but our hope is that it will open up a window on humanity in war and offer our readers some insight into what we're tracking here in DC. (You might find some light-hearted stuff at the end.) We do our very best to update it each Friday. (Sorry, we were on vacation on June 13 and we've been travelling all week so we're keeping it short and sweet). Feel free to leave comments and point us in the direction of items we might have missed.
Before we get to the list though, here are a couple of important items from ICRC.org that you might have missed.
Now on to this week's list:
And because we were off last Friday, here are a few we spotted but didn't have a chance to mention the week of June 9.
