As a result of conflict, the world today is faced with huge challenges in the protection of civilians. In Yemen, Syria and South Sudan, infrastructures have been destroyed and thousands of people are forced to flea, or face the risks of disease, famine or harm. NGOs and relief agencies play a large role in the protection of civilians, from on the ground assistance to national level campaigning. Here Oxfam's Rachel Hastie, Protection Advisor, and Fionna Smyth, Head of Humanitarian Advocacy and Campaigns, speak about the challenges we're facing in protecting civilians and what needs to change at the global level.
