Implementing the Political Declaration on explosive weapons in populated areas: why engineering-perspectives on blast effects matter

In order to implement the Declaration, we need to understand the blast effects of what we are trying to protect people from. 

Maitland et al’s analysis of 983 civilian casualties generates the first template of immediate surgical response for civilian blast injuries

Published in the Lancet, this first-of-its-kind study is an indispensable response to the increasing prevalence of blast injuries in peacetime.

How can engineering-driven approaches complement ongoing advocacy efforts to reduce harm from EWIPA? Dr Jack Denny explains.

Dr Jack Denny, Lecturer at the University of Southampton, talks to AOAV about his research into blast wave propagation in urban environments, and how engineering and data-driven approaches can both inform response strategies and complement ongoing advocacy campaigns to reduce harm from blast injuries.
