Course description

The Thematic Workshop on Monitoring, Reporting, and Fact-finding (MRF) in Armed Conflict is designed to enhance the capacity of humanitarian practitioners to conduct or contribute to monitoring, reporting, and fact-finding activities on allegations of violations of international law during armed conflict. Considering the different roles and mandates of humanitarian actors when engaged in this work, it will address the relevant legal frameworks and the interplay between international law norms and related fact work on alleged violations, the various mechanisms involved in MRF and how they interact with one another, as well as the underlying objectives and goals of MRF. The Workshop will also look into the methodological, policy, and operational questions to consider to ensure credible and effective MRF activities.
