This webinar is about qualifying a situation as an international armed conflict (IAC) or non-international armed conflict (NIAC), and how that qualification influences the application of rules of international humanitarian law. In particular, the webinar focuses on:

  • Binary framework of IAC and NIAC;
  • Relevance and utility of conducting a qualification analysis;
  • Definition of IAC and NIAC, and the consequences for various actors (i.e. military, humanitarian, etc.);
  • Threshold indicia relevant to IAC and NIAC;
  • Abilities to walk through a qualification analysis.
