44th Sanremo Round Table on Current Issues of IHL


 

The Institute is glad to announce that the 44th Sanremo Round Table on Current Issues of IHL, traditionally organised in cooperation with the International Committee of the Red Cross, will focus on

“Pandemics, armed conflict, and international humanitarian law“

The event will be held online next September 2021 (Monday 6, Wednesday 8, Monday 13 and Wednesday 15) in form of a webinar series and will address some of the most topical issues related to the implementation of IHL rules in conflict-affected areas in time of pandemics, with particular attention to the legal and operational challenges arising from such a critical combination of humanitarian crises.

More precisely, the specialised debate will not only deal with the role of humanitarian actors in providing assistance to the civil population affected by the double threat pandemic-armed conflict or with the protection of civilians living in areas controlled by Non-State Armed Groups during the pandemic. Additionally, it will analyse the diversified role played by armed forces in response to the Covid-19 emergency in many countries of the world.
