The 2019 Round Table on current issues of international humanitarian law (IHL), jointly organized by the International Institute of Humanitarian Law and the International Committee of the Red Cross, will take place in Sanremo from 4 to 6 September 2019.
The Round Table will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the 1949 Geneva Conventions by addressing the topic “Wither the human in armed conflict? IHL implications of new technology in warfare”.
On the occasion of such an important anniversary, cyber warfare, artificial intelligence and other contemporary legal challenges deriving from the use of new technologies in military operations will constitute the defining issues of the event.
The Sanremo Round Table, the flagship activity of the International Institute of Humanitarian Law, is an international gathering which, for nearly 50 years, has encouraged members of scientific, diplomatic, institutional and military circles from all over the world to meet informally and to examine the more burning issues concerning the promotion, respect and development of international humanitarian law.
