Even in wars, there are rules. One of them, universally recognized, is not to target civilians. What is the situation today? How are these "laws" applied practice in countries like Ukraine, Iraq and Turkey where civil war rage?
"Laws of war" takes us to the heart of these laws. Increasing numbers of armed groups, cross-border conflicts, killer robots, the influence of religion on the rules of engagement… Although the number of soldiers killed in combat has fallen dramatically since the end of the Second World War, civilians are now the primary victims of conflicts which ride roughshod over the rules and regulations.
