In this Military Briefing, panelists will share insights on the International Committee of the Red Cross’ (ICRC) dialogue with arms carriers (state armed forces and armed groups) aimed at enhancing the integration of international humanitarian law (IHL) into doctrine, training, education, sanctions, but also ethos.

In light of the recently published ICRC's Roots of Restraint in War report, they will reflect, with the audience, on how the law can be linked to social norms and values in order to influence the behaviour of soldiers and fighters.

Moderator

  • Marco Sassòli, Director, Geneva Academy and Professor of International Law, University of Geneva

Panelists

  • Kenneth Hume, Head of Unit for Relations with the Arms Carriers, ICRC
  • Fiona Terry, Head of the Centre for Operational Research and Experience, ICRC, and co-author of the Roots of Restraint in War study.

Audience and Registration

This Military Briefing is primarily open to Geneva Academy’s students, who will be prioritized in the allocation of seats. External participants are also welcome provided there remains adequate seating.
