PHAP – Cambridge 2018 Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy Cambridge (US)
Cambridge 2018 Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy

The 2018 series of events in PHAP’s Humanitarian Law and Policy professional development track will take place in Amman, Bangkok, Cambridge (US), Brussels, Dubai, Geneva, and Nairobi. In each location, we will be organizing a three-day Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy followed by a two-day Thematic Workshop. The Core Professional Training serves as an opportunity for experienced practitioners and policy professionals to explore international humanitarian law (IHL) challenges relevant to their work. Each Thematic Workshop focuses in depth on a different issue of concern to humanitarian actors, building on the shared understanding of international humanitarian law (IHL) developed in the Core Course and bringing in additional relevant legal, policy, and practical considerations.

Thematic Workshop on the Protection of Civilians during the Conduct of Hostilities
The core provisions of international humanitarian law (IHL) address how parties to a conflict may use force. Changes to how both governments and non-State armed groups operate in armed conflicts – such as combat increasingly taking place in densely populated urban settings and the spread of the use of drones – raise new questions about how the law on the conduct of hostilities aimed at protecting civilians is respected and operationalized. This workshop provides an analysis of IHL norms related to targeting and the means and methods of warfare.

Thematic Workshop on Human Rights in Armed Conflict
The evolution and increasing complexity of armed conflicts – in terms of the nature of the violence, the geographical scope of hostilities, the types of actors involved, and the protection issues raised – casts a new light on the applicability and relevance of human rights norms in situations of armed conflict. This workshop examines the complementarity between international human rights law (IHRL) and other legal frameworks, in particular international humanitarian law (IHL).

Thematic Workshop on Humanitarian Access for Assistance and Protection
Current armed conflicts, often characterized by a fragmentation of actors that are motivated by complex agendas, present particular difficulties in obtaining access for humanitarian assistance and protection. This workshop examines these challenges from a legal and policy perspective, with an emphasis on the rights and responsibilities of key actors.
