Course description

Current armed conflicts, often characterized by a fragmentation of actors that are motivated by complex agendas, present particular difficulties in obtaining access for humanitarian assistance and protection. This workshop examines these challenges from a legal and policy perspective, with an emphasis on the rights and responsibilities of key actors. The main rules of international law under IHL and other instruments are discussed alongside non-treaty texts, such as the recent Oxford Guidance on the Law Relating to Humanitarian Relief Operations in Situations of Armed Conflict. The course then uses this to inform a discussion on organizational approaches and strategies for reaching those in greatest need in armed conflict situations.
