There is war in Europe. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused the biggest refugee crisis since the second world war, and shaken global security. In this episode, Inside Geneva asks if the UN can do anything to restore security, finds out what effect the war will have on other humanitarian crises around the world, and explores the effects of sanctions, and the chances of accountability for war crimes.
What should we do about ‘killer robots’? Who is responsible for a weapon that acts alone? Imogen Foulkes talks to those leading the campaign to ban them, and to the guardian of the Geneva conventions, the International Committee of the Red Cross.
