The workshop is designed to enhance the capacity of humanitarian practitioners to conduct or contribute to monitoring, reporting, and fact-finding activities on allegations of violations of international law during armed conflict. Considering the different roles and mandates of humanitarian actors when engaged in this work, it will address the relevant legal frameworks and the interplay between international law norms and related fact-finding work on alleged violations, the various mechanisms involved in monitoring and reporting, how the different mechanisms and frameworks interact with each another, as well as their underlying objectives and goals. The workshop will also look into the methodological, policy, and operational questions for ensuring credible and effective fact-finding, monitoring, and reporting activities.
The course is designed for mid- and senior-level staff of UN and other intergovernmental agencies, components of the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement, NGOs, and government agencies with direct or indirect experience of humanitarian action in situations of armed conflict. Others with relevant experience, including diplomats, military personnel, and journalists, are also encouraged to apply.
