The Journal of International Humanitarian Action is calling for submissions to their Collection on Humanitarian Assistance in Armed Conflicts.

War is as old as mankind. In today’s world, armed conflicts continue to take place, but they give rise to new questions that urgently need practical answers. Among them are the questions relating to humanitarian assistance in all types of armed conflicts, including the problem of access to humanitarian aid and the protection of humanitarian workers. International Humanitarian Law governing the question of humanitarian assistance in armed conflicts does not always address contemporary challenges in a satisfactory way nor does it provide clear answers to recent developments. Taking into account legal debates and practical challenges we would like to devote one of our special collections to the interpretation of IHL in the field of humanitarian assistance during armed conflicts.

The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2024.
