In the Geneva Academy's opening lecture of the 2018–2019 academic year, Elisabeth Decrey Warner will share her experience, as Co-Founder and former Executive President of Geneva Call, in promoting respect of international humanitarian law by armed non-state actors. She will discuss the utility of international law, not its substance but also of its implementation and respect by the international community. Starting from Geneva Call’s ground-breaking approach to develop an inclusive process towards armed non-state actors, she will highlight that the limits of international law are not setin stone but are in our minds, habits and fears to develop and invent new ideas.
