- ITALY: The increase in smuggling & trafficking of migrants/refugees attempting the North Africa-Italy route means stark drop in quality of vessels. Now, the odds of dying en route are 1 in 23.

- IRAQ: We can forget ISIS respecting the IHL, but what about the Iraqi forces, eager to retake Fallujah after more than 2 years? What are the political stakes here?

- BANGLADESH: Labor conditions within the supply chains in Bangladeshi factories remain abysmal, despite the accord being legally binding. 3 years later, cca 1,388 factories are behind schedule on implementing corrective action plans.
