The Atrocity of War

Are modern wars becoming more atrocious, both in their impact on its protagonists and on the civilian population?


Are modern wars becoming more atrocious, both in their impact on its protagonists and on the civilian population? In an age where wars are often dubbed as humanitarian interventions, is there any way in which we can prevent them descending into barbarity and collateral damage? In an increasingly mediated world, is atrocity becoming more central to the strategy of war and terrorism?
Speakers: Joanna Bourke, Professor of History at Birkbeck College and author of An Intimate History of Killing; Crispin Black, Falklands War veteran and former Cabinet Office analyst; Moazzam Begg, former Guantanamo detainee and co-author of Enemy Combatant. Chair: George Kassimeris, Senior Research Fellow in Conflict at Wolverhampton University and editor of The Barbarisation of Warfare.
