Seminar on "Generating Respect For International Humanitarian Law In Today's World" and The Launch Of "People On War" Global Survey

Fiona Barnaby
Legal Advisor International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)


In 2016, the world has seen no respite from conflicts and violence. Wherever we turn, deteriorating situations cause widespread suffering - the protracted conflicts in the Middle East, violence in Africa, or closer to this region, the intensification of tensions in Rakhine, Myanmar, Southern Thailand and Southern Philippines. Even more worrying is the blatant disregard for the International Humanitarian Law, which has resulted in grave human consequences where civilians pay the highest cost.This seminar seeks to explore how IHL compliance should be strengthened to protect the victims of armed conflicts and violence, and discuss how states and humanitarian actors can help to ensure a greater compliance, in an increasingly volatile and complex landscape. The seminar will also discuss the findings of ICRC's ‘People on War’ – a global survey on the rules of war.

Seminar and Launch of Book

The Sustainability Shift: Refashioning Malaysia’s Future


The threats of environmental degradation, climate change and imminent ecological collapse faced by humanity today demand an adequate response from individuals, industries and national governments. Yet, in most countries, national policies are still based on fragmentary thinking and unsound science. Malaysia, a resource-rich upper-middle income economy, is no different. As home to an important tropical rainforest with mega-diverse species richness, it will certainly make a difference globally if Malaysia can make a transition to sustainability.

Malaysia faces a spectrum of institutional challenges as it grapples with the future transition towards sustainability. Instead of looking at environmental problems through a compartmentalised perspective, it is essential to understand the common root causes of an overarching unsustainability. This book shows how, by reforming its institutional hardware, software and ‘heartware’, Malaysia can adopt a green economy agenda and nurture an inclusive, sustainable society.

A short seminar will also be held following the launching of the book, featuring a panel of young leaders to deliberate on the future they want.

The closely-watched 8 November elections in the United States have important policy implications for Malaysia and the region. This discussion will shed light on the domestic political dynamics of the United States and unpack how a new US administration and Congress will impact bilateral and regional political, security, and defence ties in the coming years. Will there be change or continuity under a new US president? What can this region expect from the 115th sitting of Congress in January 2017?
