In 2015, 65.3 million people were displaced by conflicts worldwide. These people fled their homes in search of safety and this is just one of the consequences caused by wars all around the world.
Why War? This is the main question that will lead the conversation between Gino Strada and Giles Duley on Friday, 22 at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.
During the event, organised by Emergency UK, author, award winning correspondent and journalist Janine di Giovanni, will interview Gino Strada, war surgeon and co-founder of the international humanitarian organisation Emergency, and Giles Duley, world renowned humanitarian photographer.
It will be a unique opportunity to learn more and reflect on the economic, psychological, environmental and physical scars that wars cause even long after peace treaties have been signed.
