Concept Note

The outbreak of Covid- 19 has created an unprecedented situation all over the world. Each state is trying to overcome this pandemic’s challenges and adopting various methods to curb the spread of the virus through various methods such as regular thermal screening, sanitising places, imposing lockdowns to name a few. While using all these methods states are obliged to abide by the various principles of International law. Due to the state-centric nature of the International legal framework on laws of responsibility and states being entities which are capable of bearing rights and duties, it is easy to create obligations binding on states during this crisis in case it fails to meet the requirements mandated by international law principles. However, difficulties arise when applying the law of responsibility to armed non-state actors (ANSAs) in conflicts affected areas. With the passage of time, International law did evolve to cover various actors and international entities within its subject matter, But the development of the legal framework to regulate the responsibility and accountability for the wrongful conduct of armed non-state actors is still inadequate as compared to that of a state.

This webinar conceptualizes how International law can respond to Covid- 19 pandemic in conflicts affected areas controlled by non-state actors. It will also analyze the legal obligation of armed non-state actors in International law. In the end, the session will highlight key challenges and the possible way forward in this area.
