31st Sanremo Round Table on Current Issues of IHL

The 2008 Round Table on current issues of international humanitarian law, held in Sanremo from 4 to 6 September 2008, addressed the issue of 鈥淚nternational Humanitarian Law, Human Rights and Peace Operations鈥.
The subject chosen, 鈥淚nternational Humanitarian Law, Human Rights and Peace Operations鈥, is a topic of particular relevance and importance on the international agenda. The rule of law is a key element of modern 鈥減eace operations鈥. This term encompasses a broad range of different missions, (peace enforcement, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, peace support, etc), in which a plurality of actors are involved such as States, international organisations, 鈥渃oalitions of the willing鈥, and nongovernmental organisations. It is, therefore, crucial to re-affirm the complementarity of international humanitarian law and human rights, to better clarify the modalities of the interaction of different legal regimes and to reach an understanding on the applicability of new concepts, such as the doctrine of 鈥渢he responsibility to protect鈥. The Round Table gathered together around 400 participants from the different regions of the world including military experts, academics and representatives of governments, international organizations, IHL practitioners and NGOs which spent two to discuss IHL related detention key issues.
