The majority of the armed conflicts around the world nowadays are between States and armed groups. This has heightened the imperative to clarify the obligations of armed groups under international law. In this lecture, Dr Fortin will discuss the relationship between international humanitarian law and international human rights law when holding armed groups to account. She will also discuss when and how the practice of holding armed groups to account under human rights law, as opposed to international humanitarian law, is legitimate.

Speaker: Dr. Katharine Fortin, Assistant Professor at Utrecht University
