Our age has confronted no greater ethical, political and institutional challenge than ensuring the protection of civilians, as victims of both war and of mass atrocity crimes. In wartime, civilians have for long now been killed and maimed in numbers far exceeding armed combatants. Whether in peacetime or war, the murder, torture, rape, starvation or forced expulsion of groups of men, women and children, for no other reason than their race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, class or ideology, has been a recurring stain on the world’s collective conscience.
