The ICRC Regional Delegation in New Delhi, in collaboration with the National Law University (NLU), Delhi, coordinated the second Advanced International Humanitarian Law South Asian Academics Training (AISAAT) Programme on the NLU Delhi campus from 3 to 5 March 2014.

The programme, themed ‘Contemporary Challenges in International Humanitarian Law’, featured the participation of approximately 24 academics and International Humanitarian Law (IHL) experts from law universities throughout India and the South Asia region. IHL expert Professor Dr. V.S. Mani delivered the inaugural lecture. The event sought to provide academics an opportunity to engage in a dialogue and debate on some of the latest issues and developments in IHL.

The ICRC took this opportunity to converse with some experts participating in this programme, and brings you the interviews in two parts. Here is Part I, in which the participants discuss the role of the ICRC in convening such events. Stay tuned for Part II.
