Sanremo Round Table on “New Dimensions and Challenges of Urban Warfare”
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the International Institute of Humanitarian Law, the Institute and the International Committee of the Red Cross organize the 43rd Sanremo Round Table on “New Dimensions and Challenges of Urban Warfare”.
The Round Table, with the participation of high-level international experts and practitioners, will investigate some of the crucial issues regarding the application of IHL in urban military operations, by examining the lessons learned from recent operations, the humanitarian consequences of urban warfare, the choice of means and methods in urban context and if a change of approach from the different actors, concerning the protection of civilians, is required in the urban environment.
Due to the exceptional situation, the Sanremo Round Table will be held this year in form of a series of Webinars, every Wednesday at 3 pm CET from 9 September to 7 October 2020.
