This learning session lasts half hour and covers the following content:
- Legal bases for the application of IHL to peacekeeping operations;
- Understanding of when a peacekeeping contingent becomes a “party to the conflict,” including in the context of Force Intervention Brigades;
- Factors to consider when determining whether IHL applies, particularly in NIACs;
- Challenges raised by circumstances triggering the application of IHL (i.e. temporary loss of legal protection under, inter alia, the Rome Statute).
