The ICRC from March 8-10 coordinated the Fifth South Asian Conference on International Humanitarian Law (IHL) with the Government of Nepal in Kathmandu. The conference, which was themed ‘Sexual Violence and Armed Conflict’, brought together about 40 senior government officials, members of the armed forces and police, academics and ICRC experts from the South Asian region and from Iran. The aim was to provide the participants a platform to share information on steps taken by the States to implement IHL in the context of sexual violence in armed conflict and discuss the challenges they face. The meet also evaluated the needs of women and children in conflicts and post-conflict situations and discussed ways to address them. Here are some snapshots from the event.
