Bruges Colloquium: 21-22 October 2021 in a hybrid format, online and in Bruges
The ICRC Brussels delegation and the College of Europe have jointly organized the Bruges Colloquium on International Humanitarian Law every year since 2000 as part of their work with the European Union and NATO.
The Bruges Colloquium brings together experts from governments, international organizations and armed forces, along with academics from various universities, to discuss a specific issue related to IHL.

The 22 edition of the Bruges Colloquium will be held on 21-22 October 2021 in a hybrid format, online and in Bruges
This year, leading academics, practitioners and international experts will address:
o The Common Articles: Cross-Cutting Interpretation Challenges
o The Third Convention: Protecting Prisoners' of Today's Wars
o The Fourth Convention Commentaries Part I: IHL-IHRL, between complementarity and interplay
o The Fourth Convention Commentaries Part II: selected topics from the audience

We very much hope to maintain a hybrid format. If, due to Covid-19-related measures, we were to revert to a fully virtual format, the Colloquium would take place from 18 to 23 October 2021, with one panel per day between 2 and 3.30 pm CET.
