About the event

International humanitarian law (IHL) is seen as a branch of international law with a specific and comprehensive legal framework, however, without a strong judicial framework for the enforcement and implementation of IHL norms. Nevertheless, domestic and international courts and tribunals have started acting as a "long arm" of IHL in an increasing number of cases. This seminar explored the use of IHL by domestic and international judiciary bodies and the interaction between domestic and international perspectives on IHL.
