This collection of contributions made by renowned international experts and practitioners in the field of IHL - recalling the 40th anniversary of the adoption of the Additional Protocols to the Geneva Conventions - addresses the central question of sexual and gender violence in armed conflicts and of the integration of a gender perspective into IHL. The 40th Round Table on current issues of international humanitarian law (IHL), focussed on some very fundamental themes, such as the principles of distinction and precaution, the definition and the time frame of armed conflicts, as well the threshold of the application of the Protocols. The Round Table provided a forum to discuss other relevant topics including the treatment of persons deprived of their liberty, the protection of medical personnel and of medical activities, and the question of humanitarian access, as well as to explore whether and how the 40th anniversary of the Protocols could serve as an opportunity to shed some light on their enforcement.
