International Humanitarian Law Principles – An Update on the Israel/Gaza Conflict 3

This panel will offer an update of our examination of the application of international humanitarian law (IHL) principles to the current conflict in Israel/Gaza. Expert panelists from academia and international NGOs will discuss a few core issues, requirements for protections of civilians during conflicts, including access of humanitarian organizations, the implications of targeted killings and the use of artificial intelligence, and other issues relating to the application of humanitarian law principles. We aim to facilitate a calm and respectful consideration of different views on current heated debates. This panel is the fourth in our series on International Humanitarian Law – the first three webinars, from October 27, 2023, January 12, 2024 and March 8th are available on YouTube or at
