Description de l'événement

Public Event

Stubborn Realities, Shared Humanity: History in the Service of Humanitarian Action

Wednesday 16 September from 6:00 to 7:30 (UTC+2) 

At the Humanitarium, the ICRC Conferences and Visitors' Centre

It will also be livestreamed from this page.

The event will gather internationally recognized historians, academics and senior humanitarian practitioners to discuss the doctrine of humanitarian principles in critical historical perspective.

The year 2015 represents a major anniversary for the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement: 50 years ago, its "Fundamental Principles" have been proclaimed at its XXth International Conference  in Vienna. The aim of this conference is to reflect on how these principles have influenced – and been influenced by − the broader humanitarian sector. What can be learnt about the Principles from the rich history of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and the wider humanitarian sector, that may in turn provide insights into current realities and act as a guide for the future?

The panelists will discuss the relevance, influence and challenges of the humanitarian principles in three different historical periods: (1) From the Birth of Humanitarianism to the World Wars (c. 1860-1945), (2) Decolonisation and the Cold War (c. 1945-1989) and (3) The Era of "Liberal Interventionism" (c. 1990s-today).
