The Institute is glad to announce that the abstracts of the workshop, held on October 4, 2019 in Sanremo, are now available for download here or visiting the International and Comparative Law Research Center (ICLRC) website.
The main aim of the workshop was to further analyse the complex relationship between the two bodies of rules, with particular attention on the issues arising in this regard in the situation of armed conflict. The subject was discussed throughout two consecutive panels of experts: the first one focused on the ‘Interplay between International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law’, and the second session dedicated to the issues arising from the ‘Application of International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law by International Courts and Tribunals.
Through the successful training provided by its International Refugee Law and Migration Law Department since 1982, the Institute keeps on playing an important role to fill the gaps in the knowledge and skills of government and civil society officials engaged in working with people in need of protection. Through its courses, capacity-building, and horizontal sharing of experiences, the Institute advocates for the safeguarding of rights in a way that complements and adds to the efforts of donors in the field of protection of refugees, IDPs, stateless persons and migrants.

The Handbook – prepared by international civil and military experts convened in Sanremo by the Institute – provides a practical framework for gender mainstreaming in the training of the military, police officers and civilians who are involved in conflict scenarios. The Handbook is now available in English, translated versions in Arabic, French, Italian, Russian and Spanish will follow soon.
The Handbook is the result of a a project on “Enhancing Training on Women, Peace and Security” within the framework of Italy’s Third National Action Plan 2016-2019 in accordance with UNSCR 1325/2000, funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The International Institute of Humanitarian Law with honor accepted the invitation to take part to the first Global Refugee Forum (GRF), held in Geneva from 16 to 18 December 2019. Our Institute is represented by the Director of the Department of Refugee Law and Migration, Claudio Delfabro.
The GRF is co‐hosted by the UNHCR and the Governemnt of Switzerland and co-convened by Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Germany, Pakistan and Turkey, with the result of mobilising a broad political gathering in support of the Forum.
The first Global Refugee Forum comes at the end of a tumultuous decade in which the number of refugees has risen to over 25 million people worldwide.
The event constitutes an outstanding occasion for the international community to advance the objectives of the Global Compact on Refugees by mobilising political will, broadening the base of support, and implementing arrangements that facilitate more equitable, sustained, and predictable responsibility-sharing. In other terms, the Global Refugee Forum pursues the task of providing the international community with the opportunity to gather together around the shared objective of increasing cooperation and solidarity with refugees and affected host countries.
Guided by the Global Compact on Refugees, the Global Refugee Forum represents a crucial opportunity to translate the principle of international responsibility-sharing into concrete action. The GRF shows the most impactful pledges and contributions from governments, international organizations and private companies in the field of refugees’ protection, as well as fosters the exchange of existing good practices implemented worldwide.
