Domestic and international corruption, crime, smuggling, external intervention, the destabilizing role of militias and human rights violations are among the complex cause of instability in Libya as explained in the latest report of June 2017 issued by the UN Libya Experts Panel set up by UN Security Council in 2011.
This IHL Talk, co-organized with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), takes place during our Conference on Current Issues in Armed Conflicts. It will discuss the legal and political challenges faced by the country, including the protection of migrants and the role that different actors play in terrorism networks.
You need to register on the GCSP website to attend this event.
This IHL Talk will be followed by a cocktail reception at the Maison de la paix.
The IHL Talks are series of events, hosted by the Geneva Academy, on international humanitarian law and current humanitarian topics. Every two months, academic experts, practitioners, policy makers and journalists discuss burning humanitarian issues and their regulation under international law.

We are launching an updated version of our Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) portal, an online database that identifies and classifies all situations of armed violence that amount to an armed conflict under international humanitarian law (IHL). The updated version includes all conflicts that have emerged over the last five years and are still ongoing.
These courses form part of our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict. They are open to professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
This event marks the launch of Dr Katharine Fortin’s new book ‘The Accountability of Armed Groups under Human Rights Law’.
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.
Several ad hoc fact-finding and inquiry commissions have been established to assess some of the most serious situations of human rights and humanitarian law violations across the world. With such mechanisms gaining influence, the question arises of whether a minimum formal standard of proof (or degree of certainty) exists or is required when such bodies adjudicate on such serious matters.
