Please be aware that this is a past event.
With the United Nations Secretary-General calling the assault “the worst attack on U.N. peacekeepers in the organization’s recent history,” and “a war crime”, the incident taking place in December 2017 has renewed the debate over the status of UN Peacekeepers under IHL.

On 27 March, this webinar will discuss the legal and policy challenges related to the UN peacekeepers operating in situations of on-going armed conflict, and whether and when they can be considered a party to the conflict.

The event targets legal practitioners as well as humanitarian practitioners in the PHAP membership seeking a more advanced understanding of laws and policies related to or affecting humanitarian assistance and protection in armed conflict. The event is also open to the public.
