Joining forces to protect civilians during conflict


Partnered military operations (PMO) have steadily grown in recent decades as a way to intervene in conflicts around the globe, and in Africa, in particular. During the seminar, an officer commanding an African partnered force and other experts will delve into the complexities of developing and conducting a PMO and how these partnerships can be managed to prevent or reduce risks to civilians.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) publication, Preventing Civilian Harm in Partnered Military Operations: A Commander’s Handbook, will be launched.

This workshop is co-hosted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the ICRC delegation to the African Union.

Simultaneous English-French interpretation will be provided.

Moderator: Dr Dawit Yohannes, Project Manager and Senior Researcher, Training for Peace, ISS, Addis Ababa
