Cyberspace has dramatically transformed human existence. The ability to digitize, store, analyse and transport data around the globe has had profound effects in every sector of society and has changed the way we conduct personal, business, and political affairs. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this revolution in our societies and amplified the ubiquity of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
Yet, cyberspace also offers new means and methods for different actors to conduct malicious activities. Cyber operations conducted by both state and non-state actors are perceived as potential challenges for international peace and security as well as for the international legal order. Cyber operations have become an integral part of international relations. States and non-state actors are conducting cyber operations against other States and actors, notably during armed conflicts.
In this talk, as part of our research on disruptive military technologies, we will analyse different examples of cyber operations (eg. Stuxnet, NotPetya and SolarWinds) allegedly conducted or sponsored by states, and discuss their effects on the geopolitical contexts as well as the different challenges they raise for international law, notably jus ad bellum and jus in bello.

While the armed violence between the government and the drug cartels, as well as between cartels themselves, remains high, it has become increasingly challenging to attribute these instances of violence and clashes to specific armed groups.
We are launching today a one-month crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for a scholarship to allow a talented European student with limited means and resources to follow our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.
In this talk, Professor Frédéric Mégret will seek to excavate an understanding of IHL as partly about protecting one’s population rather than minimizing harm to ‘other’ populations.
Organized by the Geneva Academy and the ICRC, the Advanced IHL seminar for academics and humanitarian policymakers aims to enhance the capacity of academics to teach and research IHL and contemporary issues arising during armed conflict, while also equipping policymakers with an in-depth understanding of ongoing legal debates and their relevance to decision-making.
This project aims at staying abreast of the various military technology trends; promoting legal and policy debate on new military technologies; and furthering the understanding of the convergent effects of different technological trends shaping the digital battlefield of the future.
This project aimed at compiling and analysing the practice and interpretation of selected international humanitarian law and human rights norms by armed non-state actors (ANSAs). It had a pragmatic double objective: first, to offer a comparative analysis of IHL and human rights norms from the perspective of ANSAs, and second, to inform strategies of humanitarian engagement with ANSAs, in particular the content of a possible ‘Model Code of Conduct’.
