Current conflicts in Africa and the Middle East highlight the difficulties in obtaining humanitarian access in situations of armed conflict. This workshop examines these challenges from a legal and policy perspective, with an emphasis on the rights and responsibilities of key actors. The main rules of international law under IHL and other instruments are discussed alongside non-treaty texts such as the recent Oxford Guidance. The course then integrates the legal content with a discussion on strengthening organizational approaches and strategies for obtaining access to civilian populations.
