44th Sanremo Round Table on “Pandemics, armed conflict, and international humanitarian law”

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 flagship event of the Institute, to be held online on the 6th, 8th, 13th and 15th September 2021 in the form of a webinar series, 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 crisis.

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. It will additionally analyse the provision of medical care in times of armed conflict.
