Description : International humanitarian law (IHL) is undoubtedly shaped by States and other armed actors. At the same time, numerous scholars, researchers and professors contribute their ideas on what the law is or should be. What role does academia play in promoting and developing IHL, and how should States and other arms carriers listen to what it has to say ?
This year's Paul Reuter Prize Award Ceremony features a discussion with its two laureates, Julia Grignon and Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne, on their respective works on temporal application of IHL and detention in non-international armed conflict. They will talk about how their contribution, as well as ideas within the academia generally, can influence and shape the law, and how to best link IHL research with practice.
The Paul Reuter Fund was created in 1983 thanks to a donation made to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) by the late Paul Reuter, Honorary Professor at the University of Paris and member of the Institut de droit international. The Fund's purpose is twofold: to contribute financially to an undertaking in the field of international humanitarian law (e.g. the publication of a book), and to finance the Paul Reuter Prize.

Moderator : Anne Quintin, Head of the Advisory Service on IHL, ICRC.
Laureates : Julia Grignon, Professor at the law faculty, Laval University; Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne, Associate Professor in public international law, University of Reading.
Speakers : Fran├žois Bugnion, Former President of the Paul Reuter Fund Committee and member of the ICRC Assembly from 2010 until 2017; Robert Kolb, Professor of public international law at the law faculty, University of Geneva
