The 19th edition of the Bruges Colloquium will be held on 18 and 19 October 2018. 

This year, leading academics, practitioners and international experts will examine the legal and operational challenges raised by contemporary non-international armed conflicts.

It will include discussions on the applicability of International Humanitarian Law and the detention in non-international armed conflicts.

The conduct of hostilities, as well as the compliance with International Humanitarian Law by non-State actors will also be discussed.

Furthermore, two panels will respectively address the interaction between International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law, and the challenges faced by humanitarian actors in non-international armed conflicts.
