Webinar: An Introduction to International Humanitarian Law (IHL)

The Canadian Red Cross and Royal Roads University invite you to An Introduction to International Humanitarian Law (IHL).

Please join us at no charge for this special webinar on IHL. Also known as the law of armed conflict, International Humanitarian Law is the body of wartime rules that protect people who are not or are no longer participating in hostilities. Its central purpose is to limit and prevent human suffering in times of armed conflict.

The program will examine IHL in the context of current events including attacks on healthcare providers and sexual violence in conflict. It will also provide an overview of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and its role in the development of IHL.

Date: Wednesday, May 10, 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (PST)
