United Nations (UN) human rights bodies – Commissions of Inquiry, Special Rapporteurs, treaty bodies, the Universal Periodic Review of the Human Rights Council – are regularly called upon to address situations involving an armed conflict. While human rights law remains applicable and indeed critical to many aspects of conflict, a separate body of law – international humanitarian law (IHL) – is designed to regulate conduct of hostilities and provide protections throughout the conflict. Past years have seen much discussion over the legal interplay between these bodies of law.
This panel seeks to move beyond the past debates and focus on the practicalities of how IHL is used and the role it plays in the work of the UN human rights machinery.
