Relations between States are governed by international law, even during armed conflicts. International Humanitarian Law (IHL), the law of armed conflict as promulgated in the 1949 Geneva Conventions, provides protection to those affected by armed conflict without discrimination. The 1997 Additional Protocols of the Conventions provide rules relating to international armed conflicts, including rules on the conduct of hostilities and the protection of the civilian population. The application and respect of the protocols were the focus of the 40th Round Table on IHL, jointly organised by the International Institute of Humanitarian Law (IIHL) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
Please join us for this book launch where IHL academics and specialists will examine issues regarding the application of the 1977 protocols in today’s international and internal armed conflicts.
Copies of the book will be available
