On Tuesday, November 30, and Wednesday, December 1, 2021, the Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDGS), in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), organized a two-day conference on “International Humanitarian Law” held at the War Museum.

The two-day conference was attended by the Director of the Directorate of Academic Training of HNDGS (B2) and the Head of the ICRC Mission in Greece, Ms. Monica Zanarelli, while keynote speakers were the Regional Legal Adviser of ICRC, Ms. Julie Tenenbaum, and the ICRC Senior Delegate to the Armed Forces, Mr. Martin Lacourt.

The purpose of the two-day conference was to inform the personnel of the Armed Forces about the application of the principles and rules of International Humanitarian Law in Operational Planning. It was attended by 50 officials from the HNDGS, the Hellenic Army, Navy, and Air Force General Staff and included theoretical topics related to the application of the principles and rules of International Humanitarian Law during armed conflicts, the role, and responsibilities of Commanders as well as the study of corresponding case studies.

The two-day conference is included in the broader planning of HNDGS for the training of the Armed Forces personnel and contributes to the deepening of its knowledge regarding the application of the provisions of International Humanitarian Law, and the rules of International Law more generally, in armed conflicts.

During the activity, all applicable health protocols were observed to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
