The principle of proportionality implies that incidental harm must not be excessive in relation to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated. When engaging in warfare, there can be a factor of uncertainty. How do we deal with uncertainty? How can belligerents assess whether an attack is proportionate or not? Watch this video for more insights.

This video was filmed during the 2017 edition of the Advanced Seminar in IHL for University Lecturers co-organized by the ICRC and the Geneva Academy. The opinions expressed by the lecturers in the series are theirs alone, and not necessarily shared by the ICRC.
