Description : Advanced IHL Learning Series 4.

The “fight against terrorism” can take place in various situations, including armed conflicts. This raises the question of the applicability of IHL to terrorist acts and of the legal framework governing the use of force against designated “terrorists”. 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.
