Crisis Code: Humanitarian Protection in the Digital Age
By admin

In codifying the rules of war and civilian protection, the Geneva Conventions have protected countless lives for decades. But do international humanitarian laws, standards, and norms need to be reexamined in light of today’s digital reality? While Microsoft’s Brad Smith went so far as to propose a new international framework, the Digital Geneva Convention, the ensuing debate has not emphasized humanitarian imperatives.

This two-day event, brought to you by the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco & swissnex San Francisco, features panel discussions on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28 that will explore how crisis-affected populations can be safeguarded from emerging threats in cyberspace.
