Protection of civilians has been forced to the top of the agenda in numerous conflict situations and humanitarian crises. Peacekeeping missions are being given more and more responsibility for protection, but still struggle with the task. Meanwhile humanitarian agencies have to work in a complex environment with many different actors. Events in South Sudan, Central African Republic, the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, and Darfur have underlined the importance protection of civilians. This seminar will review developments, explore the constraints, and seek lessons and policy recommendations.
