This online conference takes stock of developments relating to the engagement between humanitarians and religious actors aimed at generating greater compliance with humanitarian norms in times of armed conflict. It seeks to serve as a platform for exchange and reflection among scholars from across various disciplines, humanitarian practitioners, and religious actors.

Through its opening and closing roundtables, the conference connects the topic of religious actors as potential norm-compliance generators with other innovative strategies of generating respect for international humanitarian law and international human rights law, specifically civilian engagement and peer pressure.
