      Lunchtime Conference: Ensuring respect for human rights in regional military operations

      Crisis, security and humanitarian contexts tend to exacerbate or trigger human rights concerns. Ensuring protection and respect for human rights and international humanitarian law (IHL), particularly by security and defence forces during their operations, is key. The EU is deeply committed to ensuring respect for human rights and accountability, and as such is the main donor to support the establishment of the compliance framework on human rights of the G5 Sahel Joint Force implemented by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The Compliance Framework is an innovative package of concrete, systematic and mutually reinforcing measures and mechanisms to prevent and address International Human Rights Law and international refugee law violations that could be committed by the G5 Sahel Joint Force and seeks to reduce the risk of harm to civilians in the conduct of military operations.     Introduction   Jean-Marc Dewerpe Administrator of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, DG DEVCO D1   Presentations   Maïa Trujillo Programme Manager, Sahel and Lake Chad windows, EU Trust Fund for Africa, DG DEVCO D1   Lenka Vitkova Head of Sector Human Rights, DG DEVCO B1   Matthias Behnke Chief of West and Central Africa section, OHCHR Geneva   Baptiste Martin G5 Sahel Project Coordinator, OHCHR Bamako         Conference language: English Language Q&A session: English & French   Venue: rue de la Loi 43-45, Ground floor, Brussels   Information and web-streaming:  www.ec.europa.eu/europeaid/infopoint   DISCLAIMER Any information provided will be considered as strictly confidential.
