2021 Ontario Online IHL Conference

Hundreds of immigrants walking through a field

The Canadian Red Cross, in partnership with Balsillie School of International Affairs, Project Ploughshares, Wilfrid Laurier University, and Conrad Grebel University College, is pleased to invite you to the 2021 Ontario IHL Conference. This free, public, online conference offers attendees the opportunity to further heighten their understanding and awareness of pressing issues and complexities surrounding International Humanitarian Law (IHL) through a half-day conference featuring experts and academics in the field.

International Humanitarian Law is a set of rules seeking to limit the effects of armed conflict for humanitarian reasons. The complexities of modern-day conflicts combined with the plethora of information and media interest have resulted in a heightened interest in difficult humanitarian issues particularly for students of law, those involved in countries affected by armed conflicts, humanitarian workers or those interested in working for international criminal tribunals. Join us as we examine international armed conflict through the lens of IHL.

Note: This event will take place in both English and French.

Date: November 11, 2021, 12 pm – 2:30 pm.
