Deficiencies in the protection provided by international organizations, the role of societal protection in addressing such deficiencies, the development of legal mechanisms for the protection of victims of conflicts, global solidarity networks and protection for victims of war, particularly refugees in host countries, and the role of state security policies in the removal of protection for certain groups during conflict. The conflict of some concepts of humanitarian action with the provision of protection in some cases.
