Many armed non-state actors (ANSAs) look through the lens of their religious ideologies before undertaking any commitment to international humanitarian law (IHL). At the same time, IHL is based on norms also rooted in the rules of religions and customs. Legal experts, institutions have thought through on how to make ANSAs ‘own’ norms. In other words, to which type of engagement could ANSAs but also states agree and what role does religion play in this engagement? Is there an international body looking at these questions at all and if not why not?
As the second in a series of talks on IHL brought to you by the UN Library Geneva in collaboration with the Geneva Academy, this Library Talk will explore the application of IHL to contemporary conflicts as related to ANSAs.
For those without a UNOG badge, registration for this event is obligatory. Interested participants are invited to register online before 31 August 2018.
