    The International Conference: Act Today, Shape Tomorrow with Celine Leonet

    From December 4-12 2019, the Statutory Meetings of the Red Cross and Red Crescent will bring together Red Cross and Red Crescent leaders from virtually every country in the world, as well as the International Federation, and the ICRC. Collectively known as the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, it is the world’s largest and oldest humanitarian network, consisting of 192 National Societies, more than one million members and 14 million volunteers worldwide. Also joining the meetings are States Parties to the Geneva Conventions of 1949. Together they discuss and tackle today’s most pressing humanitarian issues, as well as set the future direction of the Movement. In this episode of the podcast, we have Celine Leonet, ICRC’s Cooperation Delegate in Washington. We discuss the history of the meetings, some of the themes to be addressed there—including the future of International Humanitarian Law, the humanitarian consequences of climate shocks and hazards, and the impact of declining trust on humanitarian action—and why it all matters. Hosted by Niki Clark and Will Pons.

    The Transformative Power of Sports with Michael Rosenkrantz

    The Transformative Power of Sports with Michael Rosenkrantz

    December 3rd is the International Day of People with Disabilities. Celebrated globally since 1992, this year’s theme is "The Future is Accessible," meaning that we must all, together, look towards a future where the barriers which stand in people’s way no longer exist. According to the World Bank, one billion people, or 15% of the world's population, experience some form of disability, and disability prevalence is higher for developing countries. One-fifth of the estimated global total, or between 110 million and 190 million people, experience significant disabilities. In this episode of the podcast, we have Michael Rosenkrantz, Program Director of the Desert Ability Center, a nonprofit based in the Coachella Valley, California and whose mission to provide greater access to resources for people living with a disability by using sports as an entrée point to help them achieve their dreams. Previously, he has worked in India, Nepal, Arizona, and North Carolina. He also serves as a coaching consultant for the ICRC working under our own Jess Markt. We talk about his experiences working with people with disabilities as well as the power of adaptive sports. Hosted by Niki Clark.

    Crisis in CAR with Valerie Petitpierre

    Crisis in CAR with Valerie Petitpierre

    Since September 1, the ongoing fighting between armed groups has forced large numbers of people in Birao, in the north-east of the Central African Republic, to flee their homes. More than 25,000 people – almost the entire population of the town – were forced to flee empty-handed in a matter of hours to makeshift camps, leaving behind homes that have either been ransacked or burnt down. In addition to conflict it faces, the Central African Republic is identified as the most at-risk country in terms of population growth and climate vulnerability. In this episode of the podcast, we have Valérie Petitpierre, the ICRC Head of Delegation in the Central African Republic since 2018. She has worked in the ICRC since 2004 in such varied contexts as Israel and the Occupied Territories, Sudan, Sri Lanka and Yemen. We are also joined by Alejandra Portillo-Tayor, ICRC’s Policy Associate. Hosted by Niki Clark.

    The Operational Impacts of Islamic Law with Dr. Ahmed Al-Dawoody

    The Operational Impacts of Islamic Law with Dr. Ahmed Al-Dawoody

    With armed conflicts taking place in so many parts of the Muslim world, the Islamic law of war is as indispensable as ever for the protection of civilians and others. Over the centuries, classical Muslim jurists have provided impressive legal literature, which, just as international humanitarian law (IHL), brings humanity in war. Emphasizing the universality of IHL’s principles, which transcend legal traditions, civilizations, and cultures, is absolutely essential for improving respect and protection for victims of armed conflict in the Muslim world. In this episode of the podcast, we have Dr. Ahmed Al-Dawoody, the Legal Adviser for Islamic Law and Jurisprudence at the ICRC. We speak about the intersection of international humanitarian law and Islamic law on operational impacts, including the management of the dead and the protection of children. Hosted by Niki Clark.

    Protecting Cultural Property in Syria: Opportunities to Enhance Compliance with Polina Levina

    Protecting Cultural Property in Syria: Opportunities to Enhance Compliance with Polina Levina

    The war in Syria has lasted more than eight years and has led to massive destruction and loss of life. The human cost of this conflict is widely considered, in fact, without historical precedent among civil wars. Increasingly, there is doubt that the conflict will reach a resolution or political settlement anytime in the near future, resulting in a growing fatigue and frustration across the international community. This frustration has triggered an appetite among States, civil society and the international community for finite and concrete measures that can contribute to greater protection and compliance with international law.

    From this, a number of innovative protection responses have emerged to protect cultural heritage in the conflict which has engulfed Syria and spread to Iraq. In this episode of the podcast, we have Polina Levina from the United Nations in Geneva speaking in her personal capacity as well as our our Forum guest host Ellen Policinski. Hosted by Niki Clark.
