ICRC SURVEY - THE HUMAN CRISIS TOLL ON CIVILIANS OF ARMED CONFLICT

 

ICRC - International Committee of the Red Cross
23-06-2009
 
Geneva (ICRC) War and armed violence take an alarming toll on civilians in conflict-affected countries across the globe, according to new findings published by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Tuesday.

 

The survey reveals that displacement, separation from family members and a lack of access to basic necessities are among people's most common experiences and biggest fears.

Of those people directly affected by hostilities, 56% said they had been displaced by fighting, while almost half said they had lost contact with a loved one. One in five said they had lost their means of income.

The report, entitled "Our world. Views from the field" looks at the personal experiences, needs, worries, expectations and frustrations of conflict-affected populations in eight countries: Afghanistan, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Georgia, Haiti, Lebanon, Liberia and the Philippines. It was compiled by the Ipsos research agency and is being released to mark the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Solferino on 24 June.

"Our world. Views from the Field." Opinion Survey

Within the framework of the Our world. Your move. campaign, the ICRC commissioned Ipsos, a polling firm, to conduct quantitative (statistical) research surveys in all eight countries. A broadly representative sample of the adult general public was interviewed, either in person or by telephone, in each country. The specific sampling methods and any groups/areas excluded are described in the relevant country reports.

  • Part 1 : The impact of armed conflict was to determine whether the respondents had personal experience of armed conflict or armed violence and, if so, the specific impact it had on them.
  • Part 2: Behaviour during armed conflict will focus on what respondents think of international humanitarian law (IHL) and their views on behaviour during armed conflict. It will be published in August to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions.
