Episode #9 Influencing Behavior in War with Andrew Bell, April 4, 2017

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, researcher Andrew Bell talks about The Roots of Restraint, an upcoming ICRC report on the influencing behaviors of war. The report is a two-year research initiative intended to advance the ICRC's understanding of how norms of restraint develop and spread through State armed forces and non-State armed groups. Nine academics, including Bell, investigated sources of influence on the behavior of combatants in eight armed groups, and explored cases of community self-protection. In the podcast, Bell discusses his role in the study and how his background, an interesting intersection of theology, law, political science, security and conflict, brought a unique view to the study. Hosted by Niki Clark and Tracey Begley.
