What does Islamic law say about international humanitarian law (IHL) notably in relation to the protection of civilians, the prohibition against indiscriminate attacks, the protection of property or the treatment of prisoners of war? What are the challenges facing the application of certain classical Islamic rules on the use of force in modern armed conflicts? How to engage with Islamic armed non-state actors (ANSAs) on IHL?
The IHL Talks are series of events, hosted by the Geneva Academy, on international humanitarian law and current humanitarian topics. Every two months, academic experts, practitioners, policy makers and journalists discuss burning humanitarian issues and their regulation under international law.

Our 2016 Annual Report is out! It provides an overview of our activities and achievements.
We added nine military occupations to our Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) online database. Visitors can discover them either by browsing the map or by browsing conflicts per types or regions.
Panelists will discuss the 2018 Annual Report on Universal Jurisdiction published annually by TRIAL International.
This year's edition will take place in London and will notably discuss the global system for accountability, reparations and justice, the qualification of armed conflict, armed gangs and organized crime and emerging military technologies.
The Geneva Academy team followed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) negotiations and provided key information on the negotiations, notably via a daily blog.
This project aims at compiling and analysing the practice and interpretation of selected international humanitarian law and human rights norms by armed non-state actors (ANSA). It has a pragmatic double objective: first, to offer a comparative analysis of IHL and human rights norms from the perspective of ANSA, and second, to inform strategies of humanitarian engagement with ANSA, in particular the content of a possible ‘Model Code of Conduct’.
