Description : Advanced IHL Learning Series 6.

The principle of distinction entails that parties to a conflict must at all times distinguish between civilians and combatants and between civilian objects and military objectives. What does it mean in practice for today’s armed conflicts? Watch this video for more insights.

This video was filmed during the 2017 edition of the Advanced Seminar in IHL for University Lecturers co-organized by the ICRC and the Geneva Academy. The opinions expressed by the lecturers in the series are theirs alone, and not necessarily shared by the ICRC.
