Registration deadline:04 Jul 2019
Training date:11 Jul 2019to12 Jul 2019—
The evolution and increasing complexity of armed conflicts – in terms of the nature of the violence, the geographical scope of hostilities, the types of actors involved, and the protection issues raised – casts a new light on the applicability and relevance of human rights norms in situations of armed conflict.
This workshop examines the complementarity between international human rights law (IHRL) and other legal frameworks, in particular, international humanitarian law (IHL). Building on an exploration of the legal aspects of the interplay between those frameworks, the workshop then provides participants with an overview of what the application of human rights norms means in practice, with a view to strengthen protection of people affected by armed conflict.
Case studies and exercises incorporated into the workshop explore specific issues for which this interplay between legal frameworks is particularly important, including detention, the use of lethal force, the delivery of humanitarian assistance, the administration of a territory by a non-State armed group, and the use of human rights protection mechanisms.
