Event description

Description

As the nature of conflict evolves, new questions are being asked about how individual safety and the rights of civilians are affected. Who is responsible for protecting the human right to bodily integrity in a globalised world? How is the transformation of warfare in the technological, political and strategic realms affecting the individual rights of civilians and combatants? Given the increasing prominence of the human rights regime and its associated institutions, the tension between human security and state interests raises the question of responsibility and obligation within an increasingly complex international system. The upcoming edition of STAIR will include feature articles and interviews from scholars and practitioners working on topics such as feminist foreign policy, refugee studies, and male-targeted sexual and gender-based violence. In so doing, STAIR intends to emphasize the magnitude and complexity involved in tackling the challenges faced, as well as capitalizing upon the agency harbored, by individuals in armed conflict. The speakers of the launch event include Charu Hogg (Chatham House, Founder and Project Director of All Survivors Project), Jelke Boesten (Gender and Development Department of International Development, King’s College London) and Barbara Jackson (Humanitarian Affairs Advisor, International Committee of the Red Cross in the UK and Ireland).

The event will be followed by a wine and snacks reception.
