Geneva Call donors meeting
16 janvier 2014
Last 16 January, Geneva Call presented its 2014 strategy to its main donors and supporters. The meeting started with an introductory speech by Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) who highlighted the complementarity between the missions carried out by the ICRC and Geneva Call.
The participants were then guided through a fictitious scenario based on real situations that Geneva Call has dealt with over the last few years. This innovative approach helped guests better understand the challenges Geneva Call faces in engaging armed non-State actors. Geneva Call also benefited from participants’ numerous questions, remarks and feedback.
Several donors reiterated their support to Geneva Call, underlining its innovative and highly unique activity, and the need to maintain such engagement work with armed non-State actors to improve the protection of civilians in armed conflict.
