Bangkok 2020 Thematic Workshop on Engaging Non-State Armed Groups for Humanitarian Protection
The prevalence of armed conflicts involving armed non-State actors carries important legal, policy, and operational implications for humanitarian professionals. Focusing on their application to non-State armed actors, this workshop provides a review of the relevant bodies of international law, in particular international humanitarian law and international human rights law. It also offers an analysis of frameworks and methods for engagement with non-State actors on specific issues such as negotiating humanitarian access or developing humanitarian protection strategies. This workshop, organized in partnership with Geneva Call, aims at strengthening participants’ capacity to use international law to engage with non-State armed actors when appropriate in those challenging contexts and promote their respect of international norms in conflict situations.
