The Protection of Vulnerable Populations in Armed Conflict: Discrimination & persecution based on sexual orientation or gender identity


Join us online as we explore the role that International Humanitarian Law (IHL) plays in dealing with contemporary challenges to the protection of civilians in the situation of armed conflict. This year’s conference will seek to raise awareness about vulnerable populations in times and areas of armed conflict, focusing on the impact of conflict on protection of members of the LGBTQ+ community and those discriminated against due to their gender or sexual identities or expressions.
