The presentations delivered during the last Sanremo Round Table (6-8 September 2018) on “Deprivation of Liberty and Armed Conflicts: exploring realities and remedies” are now available in PDF for consultation here. The few that are missing will follow shortly.
The Round Table gathered together about 200 participants coming from different regions of the world including military experts, academics and representatives of governments, international organizations, IHL practitioners and NGOs.
Experts had the opportunity to discuss key themes of international humanitarian law, such as the legal basis and the grounds and procedures for deprivation of liberty during armed conflicts, as well as the treatment and conditions reserved to detainees. Some specific challenges, such as the transfer of detainees in multinational operations, detention by non-state actors and migration-related detention were also addressed during the conference.
