As the world continues to grapple with humanitarian crises and armed conflicts that have taken an unprecedented toll on millions of people, we must ask: what role do international organizations have in upholding international humanitarian law? What are the limits and potentials of international organizations in alleviating the suffering of victims during armed conflict? Basma Tabaja, Head of the ICRC delegation in Qatar, and Yara Khawaja, Deputy Head of Mission and Humanitarian Affairs Adviser at the ICRC in Qatar will engage in a moderated discussion to address these and related questions.

Moderated by Noha Aboueldahab

Location: Faculty Conference Room (1D02), First Floor Georgetown University in Qatar
