The Government is currently reviewing its strategy on Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict, and is committed to ensuring that its approach benefits all civilians, including children and other vulnerable groups, and that it reflects the changing international landscape and the complexity of many conflicts. The Government welcomes recent research carried out by academics and NGOs in this field and is taking their work into account as it undertakes its review. The Government aims to complete the review by the end of 2019.
