Description : The results of a major new research survey on the effects of war and armed conflict on people's daily lives are published this week (23 June). The report, entitled Our world. Views from the field, offers a stark vision of the experiences, needs and hopes of people struggling under the impact of violence. In the 8 countries surveyed, nearly half the respondents (44%) had personal experience of conflict, while around two thirds (66%) had been affected in some way. Almost everyone in Haiti (98%), Lebanon (96%), and Afghanistan (96%) had suffered the wider consequences of armed violence and war. In these countries, which are affected or have recently been affected by armed conflict and violence, being uprooted from home, separated from loved ones and dealing with economic hardship are day-to-day realities. The survey has been carried out to mark the 150th anniversary of the battle of Solferino which led to the creation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 1863.
