| February 21, 2012

Webster's annual humanitarian conference brings thinkers from around the world to Geneva.

Webster University Geneva’s International Relations Department will hold its 17th annual International Humanitarian Conference on March 1 and 2 at Geneva’s International Conference Centre.

This year’s theme, “Refugees and Armed Conflicts,” addresses one of the most challenging issues faced in humanitarian work.

The 2012 conference is being organized around five themes:

  • legal instruments and the protection of victims of war, displaced persons, and refugees;
  • the evolution of armed conflicts and the challenge of protection;
  • the responsibility to protect—theory and practice; the practice of the protection of refugees and victims of war; and
  • coping with displacement and forced migration on the international and national levels.
