El hambre como arma de guerra: Metodología para documentar evidencias y analizar su impacto.
The starving of civilians as a method of warfare continues being a common practice. The unanimously adopted UN Security Council Resolution 2417 on May 24, 2018 was a very important achievement for Humanitarian Law. It meant the recognition and the prohibition of that practice.
However, the implementation of the Resolution and the elimination of that war tactic remains a difficult challenge. One of the problems is the lack of mechanisms for gathering empirically-grounded evidence about the practice and its perpetrators.
Therefore, in this session we will present a methodology developed by Action Against Hunger and Hegoa Institute, and financed by eLankidetza- Basque Agency for Development Cooperation. The aim is to collect information about actions that cause hunger in conflicts, which could be applicable to different scenarios of armed-conflict. The method aims to reveal these practices and, therefore, to avoid them.
Action Against Hunger: Manuel Sánchez-Montero (advocacy director) and Jean Raphael Poitou (advocacy officer).
Hegoa Institute: Karlos Pérez de Armiño (head of research) and Alba Linares Quero (researcher).
Presentation by Paul Ortega Etcheverry, director of eLankidetza.
*The event will be held in Spanish, with simultaneous translation into English.
