Protection of Civilians in Humanitarian Settings Panel Discussion
This panel discussion, organised by the Humanitarian Action Study Group of the Development Studies Association of Ireland, will look at the challenges of protection of civilians in humanitarian settings, with a focus on Sudan, South Sudan, and Mali, comparing the challenges encountered and the approaches taken. The speakers will explore the different situations, the risks to civilians caught in the conflicts, and the ways that protection was used to try to mitigate these risks. Both protection of civilians in a peacekeeping context, and the use of protection strategies more broadly in a humanitarian context will be considered.
