In this Military Briefing, panelists will share insights on the International Committee of the Red Cross’ (ICRC) dialogue with arms carriers (state armed forces and armed groups) aimed at enhancing the integration of international humanitarian law (IHL) into doctrine, training, education, sanctions, but also ethos.
In light of the recently published ICRC's Roots of Restraint in War report, they will reflect, with the audience, on how the law can be linked to social norms and values in order to influence the behaviour of soldiers and fighters.
This Military Briefing is primarily open to Geneva Academy’s students, who will be prioritized in the allocation of seats. External participants are also welcome provided there remains adequate seating.
All interested participants need to register to attend this event via this online form.
Military Briefings are a unique series of events relating to military institutions and the law. They aim to improve our students’ knowledge of military actors and operations and build bridges between the military and civilian worlds.

Despite confinement, social distancing and a programme that is now entirely online, students managed to pursue, albeit remotely, their precious interactions, discussions and social life.
In the framework of our LLM and the course on IHL given by our Director Professor Marco Sassòli, students pleaded online on 17 May for Russia and Georgia arguing that the side they represent has respected IHL while the adverse side has violated IHL.
This panel discussion marks the Launch of our New Research Initiative, carried out jointly by our Swiss IHL Chair Robin Geiß and the ICRC.

This project will explore humanitarian consequences and protection needs caused by the digitalization of armed conflicts and the extent to which these needs are addressed by international law, especially international humanitarian law.
