This session will look at the importance of engaging with non-state armed groups in humanitarian contexts, in order to ensure access to vulnerable communities living under their control and the provision of humanitarian aid in these settings.

It will focus on concrete field perspectives (e.g. Sahel, Nigeria, Myanmar, Yemen) to identify the challenges and opportunities of engaging with these groups in order to better protect civilian populations impacted by conflicts and support compliance with International Humanitarian Law.
