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.
