2018 Vancouver International Humanitarian Law Conference: Enforcing Humanity

International Humanitarian Law (IHL) limits and prevents human suffering in armed conflict.  Join us as we examine the challenges of enforcing IHL in a fast-changing world.  Conference sessions include an introduction to international humanitarian law, an overview of the forms of justice, enforcement of IHL, and real stories from real people impacted by war.  This conference will bring together experts from the fields, including academics, and representatives from the Red Cross Movement, to discuss the issues and their potential solutions.  

The event organized by the Canadian Red Cross is made possible thanks to support from Global Affairs Canada.  Free to register.

Conference: 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Reception: 5:00pm - 6:00pm
