What is on the agenda?
This edition of the International Conference offered participants the opportunity to discuss its main themes in both, formal settings -through plenary, commissions and formal statements (“For the record: voices from the Conference”); and informal ones, such as side events, the humanitarian village and networking sessions. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore the RCRC history through a humanitarian trail in the city of Geneva.
What are the themes?
The three days of the International Conference will be dedicated to one key theme each: “International humanitarian law”, “shifting vulnerabilities” (with important sub-topics, such as health and mental health, climate change, digital transformation, migration and displacement and urban challenges) and “trust in humanitarian action”.
What are the main outcomes?
Resolutions and pledges are key ways in which the International Conference records its decisions and calls its members to action. Other outcomes include, strengthened and new partnerships, increased knowledge and greater sense of unity.
