The 7th Summer Institute on International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights

The HRRC, together with the Udayana University, will be hosting  the 7th Summer Institute on International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, to be held from the 12th to the 15th of August 2014 in Bali, Indonesia. The theme for this year is “Combatting Violence Against Women & Violence Against Children in Conflict Situations and Beyond. 

The aim of this year’s Summer Institute is to create an exchange between the ASEAN bodies and researchers/academia, by presenting current findings from studies issued on VAW and VAC, both in and outside of ASEAN, as well as “notes from the field” from key international actors. These findings will serve as a basis for discussion about what might be the “next steps” in ensuring the ongoing prevention of VAW and VAC in ASEAN. The discussion will be framed by both the regional commitments already made to combat VAW and VAC, as well as international action being advanced by UN agencies, the Security Council and bilateral efforts toward this end. 

The Summer Institute is supported by the ASEAN-U.S. Progress (a joint project of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. State Department and ASEAN, implemented by DAI) and the British Embassy in Jakarta.
