​The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is leading a review of the Government's approach to Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict. The review involves contributions from both the Department for International Development and the Ministry of Defence. It is an opportunity for the Government to take into account recent developments in the field of Protection of Civilians policy, including work by states, international organisations, civil society and academia, and to consider a wide range of issues, including children in conflict zones, casualty recording and civilian harm-tracking mechanisms. The review will be completed by the end of 2019.
