Changing the narrative on IHL (A Live-Streamed Event)


On September 27, 2017 from 12 PM to 1:45 PM EST, a live-streamed expert panel at the Humanitarium will reflect on ways to reframe the narrative on IHL by focusing on contemporary examples of respect.  Based on the promotion of instances of respect, the panel will reflect on new approaches and initiatives to reaffirm the relevance and usefulness of IHL and improve respect for it. 

The conference is part of the ICRC's Conference Cycle on Generating respect for the law and will be live-streamed here.
