With Dr. Jan Römer, Regional Legal Adviser, ICRC at the event in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions, hosted by the Embassy of Switzerland in Malaysia and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), in partnership with the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS).
This year, the participants reflected on the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols, on the path taken and the challenges ahead.
The event also traced Malaysia’s commitment to the Convention, the relevance of the Additional Protocols to Malaysia and considered the Additional Protocols from an IHL and human rights perspective.
In the second part, the event considered the Geneva Conventions in a wider context, in particular on other IHL treaties which are of interest to Malaysia, such as nuclear disarmament and the regulation of arms trade.
The event concluded with the participants considering the different ways to promote and implement IHL in the country, taking inspiration from the Indonesian experience #GenevaConventionsAt70 #InternationalHumanitarianLaw #ICRC #MRCS #centhra
