International humanitarian law (IHL) is the body of law that sets limits to warfare and establishes rules for the treatment of all those involved. This UN Library Talk explores how political and faith considerations may affect the interpretation of the law, and how ‘faith’ and ‘rights’, far from being incompatible, could work together in creating better rights protection and better compliance with IHL.
This is the first in a series of talks on IHL designed by UN Library Geneva, in collaboration with the Geneva Academy, to explore the application of IHL in different socio-political contexts exposed to conflict.
For those without a UNOG badge, registration for this event is obligatory. Interested participants are invited to register on-line before 11 April 2018.
