Please note that this event was originally planned on 9 November. Due to technical issues it has been rescheduled and attendants are requested to register in order to receive the new link.


This panel event will highlight some key findings of the Center for Reproductive Rights' newly released publication on Accountability for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Humanitarian Settings: Examining the Role and Relationship of Diverse Branches of International Law.

The report will be situated within the longer trajectory of gender and international humanitarian law, including growing attention to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) under international law'. It will highlight the continuing gaps in services and accountability and the potential role international human rights law can play in ensuring protection for the wider umbrella of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), both generally speaking and in the context of a particular refugee camp. The discussion will also explore ways to hold non-state actors, including armed groups, accountable under the various branches of international law.  

The event will conclude by highlighting some general considerations for using legal accountability to ensure human rights compliant SRH services in humanitarian settings.
