Protecting individuals' personal data is an integral part of protecting their life and dignity. This is why personal data protection is of fundamental importance for humanitarian organizations operating in armed conflicts (and other situations of violence). This event aims at tackling the issue in light of developments in new technologies such as the refinement of artificial intelligence, the increasing use of block-chain, the expectation of constant connectivity, and the role of social media.

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, hosted by the Geneva Academy, is part of the Axis of Protection: Human Rights in International Law Seminar Series 2019– 2020, co-convened by scholars from the Universities of Durham, Exeter, Reading and Oxford.
This short course provides an overview of the evolution of the rules governing the use of force in international law, focusing on military intervention on humanitarian grounds and the creation of the United Nations collective security system. It then addresses the concept of the responsibility to protect.
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.
Against the background of the mobilization of ‘foreign fighters’ for the conflicts in Syria and Iraq, the Geneva Academy undertook various research projects to highlight and clarify a range of international law issues that arise through their participation and measures taken to stem their mobilization.
This project looked at how to enhance compliance by armed non-state actors with international norms, taking into account the views both of the actors themselves and the experiences of those engaged in dialogue with them.
