Where: Royal Irish Academy, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Ireland
In October 2013, our partners at the Irish Red Cross will host a conference entitled 'Contemporary challenges in international humanitarian law'. The conference will bring together experienced and emerging legal practitioners, academics, partners and students to explore the many contemporary challenges to IHL and contribute to moving the current debate forward. The organizers are pleased to invite abstracts of a maximum of 500 words before the deadline of 3 September 2013. More information on the guidelines for abstract submission.
In the year when the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement marks 150 years since its creation there is renewed focus on how international humanitarian law (IHL) protects civilians and the sick and injured in armed conflict.
The nature of armed conflict is constantly evolving. New technologies develop and new trends emerge, presenting new challenges for those concerned with ensuring respect for IHL.
RIA is located in the centre of Dublin City and is easily accessible by public transport. Please note parking is not available at the venue.
