Online Learning Series on Humanitarian Law and Policy – The relationship between the International Criminal Court and humanitarian actors

2 December 2015 | 2pm – 3pm (GMT) | PHAP

Though the International Criminal Court represents an important commitment to international justice, it is not free from challenges and critique. One such issue is the relationship between the ICC and humanitarian actors.

Humanitarian actors often have unparalleled access in the contexts the Court investigates, and because of this humanitarians may be approached to cooperate with the Court. Such cooperation, however, complicates the principles that govern humanitarians’ operations. This event will explore the issues and debates stemming from the relationship between the ICC and humanitarian actors.
