Current Issues in Armed Conflict Conference
This year's edition will take place in London and will discuss the global system for accountability, reparations and justice from the perspective of victims, the qualification of armed conflict, armed gangs and organized crime and emerging military technologies. Some of these issues are drawn from the 2017 edition of the War Report.
Expert panels with leading academics and practitioners will address these topics. To foster interactions and debate among participants, speakers will provide different /complementary perspectives and leave space for interactions with the public.
More details on speakers and the programme will be announced in due course.
A drinks reception will follow from 19:00 - 19:30

This panel will focus on the practicalities of how international humanitarian law is used and the role it plays in the work of the UN human rights machinery.
This short course focuses on the specific issues that arise in times of armed conflict regarding the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights. It addresses key issues like the applicability of human rights in times of armed conflict; the possibilities of restricting human rights under systems of limitations and derogations; and the extraterritorial application of human rights law.
This short 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.
