Lecture with Red Cross Students Desk: Human Rights in Times of Conflict

Last Monday, the long-awaited lecture Human Rights in Times of Conflict took place. With no snowstorm to stop us this time, Jos Soliman took the audience away with his knowledge on humanitarian law both in theory and practice, whereas Belinda van der Gaag shared her experiences regarding the case of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, and how the Red Cross operates in these situations. 

It was an interesting and intimate lecture, in which the audience gained new insights in the difficulties of upholding the humanitarian law in violent conflicts and how this affects the residing people. A special thanks to the speakers and to the Red Cross Student Desk, with whom we worked together.The insights and defiant statements sparked a fascinating debate and left us all with intriguing food for thought at the end of the night.
