How to participate
The topic of the 2022 Sanremo Round Table will be “After the conflict before the peace: legal, military and humanitarian issues during the transition”. The International Institute of Humanitarian Law and the International Committee of the Red Cross have the pleasure to invite submission of short essays no longer than 2500 words addressing a subject related to one of the following broad topics:
- Planning and preparedness for post-conflict from military and/or humanitarian perspectives
- Legal and military challenges in Non-Combatant Evacuation Operations
- Legal status of evacuees from NEOs and legal responsibility for them
The organisers invite you to focus not only on jus post bellum, but also on the challenges and opportunities for preparing for the aftermath of conflict with on-going IHL obligations, moreover they particularly encourage papers from all those who have a gender or diversity lens on NEOs and related evacuees.
