Saferworld’s Warpod episode 3: Understanding the cost of conflict

In the third episode of Warpod, Abigail Watson and Delina Goxho are joined by Sarah Kreps, Director of the Cornell Tech Policy Lab, and Maysa Ismael from Airwars. In the episode, we discuss why and how the secrecy surrounding warfare has increased. Sarah and Maysa explain what this secrecy may mean for discussing the true risks of contemporary conflict and why Western publics and parliaments often fail to understand these risks. This episode was recorded before the UK's Integrated Review was published and discusses how it should incorporate the protection of civilians.
