International Committee of Red Cross conference report

From February 24 to 27, 2019, Dr. Mohammad Dawood Rezaei, Head of Law and Political Science Faculty and Director of Law Department at Kateb University, participated in the scientific conference of the International Committee of the Red Cross. The scientific conference was held in capital city of Mandmato, the capital of Nepal, and was attended by representatives of South Asian countries, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, the Maldives and Sri Lanka. Representatives from Iran also attended the conference, despite not being members of SAARC.

The official title of the conference was the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and speakers from various countries spoke on issues related to international humanitarian law. Dr. Davood Rezaei, on behalf of Kateb University, also spoke at the conference and spoke about the “nature of international human rights law, as well as its differences and similarities with international human rights law.”  Dr. Rezaei’s speech was well received by the International Committee of the Red Cross and conference participants.

It is worth mentioning that Kateb University is the only educational institution in Afghanistan that actively participated in the International Conference of the International Committee of the Red Cross this year and introduced a speaker there. For more than two centuries, the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) has been active in the region. For the first time, Afghanistan has taken an active part in the scientific programs of this organization and introduced its speaker. Dr. Rezaei also represented Afghanistan at the conference.

In addition, the participation of Dr. Dawood Rezaei in this conference is an important step towards the realization of the “vision” and “mission” of Kateb University and Department of Law. The vision and mission of Department of Law at Kateb University is to turn this department into a top department in country and  region. Therefore, active participation in scientific programs and conferences held at the regional level will bring the Department of Law closer to realizing its long-term vision and mission.

Representatives of the Ministry of National Defense, Attorney General’s Office, National Directorate of Security of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and some higher education institutions, attended International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) conference.
