Armed Conflict & Humanitarian Law

a workstream within the Human Rights for Future Generations Programme

The Armed Conflict & Humanitarian Aid workstream intends to contribute to a better understanding of the contemporary challenges facing armed conflict from a legal and policy perspective. The ultimate objective is to engage in in-depth reflection, based on scientific methods, which is often missing in domains that are constantly evolving in response to current events and are subject to the political pressures. Much of the work within this theme also examines the law relating to Humanitarian Aid in situations of conflict.
