International Humanitarian Law webinar in Brussels (EHF)
About the event
We would like to invite you to the Webinar on International Humanitarian Law (IHL) organised by the European Commission (DG ECHO) jointly with France, Germany, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), in preparation of the European Humanitarian Forum.
The webinar aims to explore one of the key themes of the European Humanitarian Forum and of the Commission's March 2021 Communication on the EU's Humanitarian Action, namely promoting and strengthening International Humanitarian Law (IHL).
More specifically, the event will examine ways in which the EU's internal coordination on IHL can be strengthened, in order to enhance IHL advocacy and the use of the EU's IHL toolbox.
The webinar will also tackle the question of strengthening the monitoring of violations of IHL.
In addition, the event will focus on the question of addressing sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in armed conflict, including through the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-Based Violence.
Finally, the event will discuss the question of safeguarding humanitarian personnel and improving humanitarian access in armed conflicts, including in areas controlled by Non-State Armed Groups (NSAGs). The event will also aim at widening the support to the Humanitarian Call for Action.
