You are cordially invited to a side event to the CCW Sixth Review Conference, exploring the ideological framing of the use of the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) over time - from its rise in revolutionary movements of the 19th century, to its use in nationalist uprisings in the 20th, and its role in conflicts framed in religious terminology in the 21st century.
Research on the use of IEDs within far-right extremist networks and the role of suicide bombing in Boko Haram's insurgency will be presented.
This event is co-organized by the Permanent Mission of France and Action on Armed Violence (AOAV).
