“Humanitarian-Development-Peace Divide and International Law”, 21 April 2021, 3-4.15pm (GMT)A roundtable with Cordula Droege (ICRC), Vikram Raghavan (World Bank), Romano Lasker (UNDP); moderated by Heike Krieger (FU Berlin).
Around the world armed conflicts are increasingly protracted. In Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Syria, Colombia, Yemen and other parts of the world, populations have been affected by war for years on end and in some instances for decades. Protracted armed conflicts raise a range of challenges across (geo-)political, legal, institutional, humanitarian, developmental and environmental dimensions. The dire socio-economic dimensions of protracted conflicts, as well as the link between poverty, fragility and violence, render traditional divides between humanitarian and development perspectives unable to grasp the interconnected short- and long-term needs of affected communities.
Join us for an online panel discussion, on Wednesday 21 April 2021, 3.00pm UK time. Our esteemed speakers will explore how greater convergence and complementarity between humanitarian, development, and peace objectives can be achieved, and what role international law can play in realising ‘the triple nexus’. The moderated discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
The event will be a part of the Endless Conflicts project and the webinar series of the Glasgow Centre for International Law and Security.
