In the context of our Academic Platform on Treaty Body Review 2020, an academic process contributing to the 2020 review of UN treaty bodies by the General Assembly, we held two regional consultations, for Eastern Europe and Latin America.
Our Academic Platform on Treaty Body Review 2020 held on 20–21 July its fourth regional consultation in Nairobi, Kenya, in partnership with Strathmore University Law School and the Universities of Nairobi and Pretoria.
This course aims to study, in depth, an emblematic example of the complexity of international humanitarian law and the challenges it raises: the classification of armed conflicts.
This course discusses the extent to which states may limit and/or derogate from their international human rights obligations in order to prevent and counter terrorism and thus protect persons under their jurisdiction.

This research project aimed to clarify the multiple facets of post-conflict peacebuilding.
Launched in 2016, this project aimed to identify whether, to what extent and under what circumstances armed non-state actors incur obligations under international humanitarian law (IHL) and international human rights (HR) law.
