The Advisory Service on IHL (DP_JUR_CONSULT) contributes to institutional efforts aimed to support an environment conducive to the respect for the law, in particular international humanitarian law (IHL), by promoting universal acceptance of IHL treaties and the adoption of a comprehensive domestic legal framework to fulfil States’ obligations under these treaties and other relevant international norms.  Working worldwide through a network of legal advisers, the Service supplements and supports governments’ own resources by: encouraging and supporting adherence to IHL and related instruments; providing specialist advice and assistance to States as they adopt legal and administrative measures to give effect to their IHL obligations; and collecting and facilitating exchange of information between States on national IHL implementation laws and other measures adopted. It furthermore promotes and supports the work of committees on IHL established to facilitate the IHL implementation process.

The Advisory Service multifaceted approach includes an expertise in the main legal systems, i.e. common law, civil law, and Islamic law. In particular, the Advisory Service has developed in the recent years its capacity to understand the commonalities between IHL and the Islamic laws of armed conflict. Such expertise contributes to the ICRC’s work towards building a dialogue with different influential stakeholders, including governmental authorities, the judiciary, as well scholars and academic experts working on situations of armed conflict.

Working under the supervision of the legal adviser on IHL and Islamic law and jurisprudence, the associate supports all the IHL and Islamic law related activities of the Advisory Service. The associate is also expected to provide support to other colleagues in the Service, as necessary.

Within the sector of domestic violence, the question of evaluation and effectiveness is central. Despite the existence of a wide array of interventions and programmes, how effectiveness is to be measured given difference designs, methodologies and approaches in the sector is an on-going debate. Moreover, specialists increasingly recognise the importance of accounting for cultural diversity and the need to address gaps in the domestic violence evidence of what works and for whom in different cultural contexts.
This webinar organized by project dldl, will explore how domestic violence interventions can be assessed cross-culturally, with a special focus on interventions that are designed to be sensitive to religious traditions, faith and spirituality. Some of the questions that guide the webinar include:
  • Are current methods adequate to capture the complex mechanisms by which faith-based domestic violence interventions impact on victims/survivors and perpetrators, congregations or communities?
  • How should evaluation mechanisms be designed when programmes aim to be religio-culturally sensitive and what should be the standards for measuring effectiveness, if there should be a common standard in the first place?
  • Currently, the randomised controlled trial (RCT) method is considered one of the most rigorous scientific approaches in the evaluation of domestic violence programmes. Are RCTs appropriate and adequate for capturing impact when it is recognised that impact can be defined differently cross-culturally, requiring different approaches to be measured?
