Violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law significantly increase the horrors inherent in war. Compliance with the law is therefore critical in order to reduce civilian suffering. Monitoring, reporting, fact-finding, and investigating are often relied upon as means to place pressure on individuals and parties to the conflict to strengthen the protection of civilians and to hold violators accountable for their actions. This workshop examines the different mechanisms and methodologies available for monitoring, reporting, fact-finding, and investigating.
