DIGITALISED WARFARE, BIG WAR, CLIMATE CRISIS AND THE FUTURE OF HUMANITARIANISM 

A conversation with Hugo Slim about where we are heading 

 

Come join us when we bring together humanitarian, defence and academic experts to engage with Hugo Slim on his analysis of the emerging global challenges; and what that means for protection of civilians and the humanitarian system. 

 

War is at a tipping point – but what are the implications for humanitarianism? The possibility of big war spread across new domains, and intense computerised warfare with its distinct ethical challenges around AI, fought out in the context of deep interlocking megatrends like climate change, urbanisation and increasing infectious diseases, is fundamentally remaking humanitarian efforts. 

 

In a recently launched book, Solferino 21: Warfare, Civilians and Humanitarians in the 21st Century, Hugo Slim discusses these developments. Slim contends that humanitarian response is also evolving - fast. 'Big Aid' demands more and more money, while aid workers try to digitalise, preparing to meet the ever-growing needs of the new wars and climate crisis of the future—but maybe humanitarians are trying to cover too much ground?

Hugo Slim, Senior Research Fellow, Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict
