Launch of Humanitarian Law & Policy Blog

This week our colleagues in Geneva launched a brand new Humanitarian Law & Policy blog, acting as a bridge between academic research and practical field application, allowing for timely engagement on crucial humanitarian issues.

For 2016, a few key themes include: 

  • Challenges - migration and forced displacement, attacks on health care, sexual violence, detention, torture and other forms of ill-treatment
  • Legal issues - compliance with IHL and the prevention of atrocities in conflict, the protection of civilians and civilian objects, new technologies of warfare
  • Humanitarian policy - aid architecture and coordination, humanitarian financing and protracted crises, principles guiding humanitarian action.
