The forum will provide an overview of two conflicts ongoing today that are prominent in IHL academic and practical discourse, and follow with open conversation and discussion. Afterward, the forum will hear about the new research project "IHL in Action" of the The International Criminal and Humanitarian Law Clinic and the ICRC that gathers situations of IHL compliance in conflict. As part of the forum's informal atmosphere to encourage dialogue by the attendees, we will be providing pizza!
