This Technical Note (TN) is part of a series of thematic TNs that aims to support Sida staff and partners to apply the human rights-based approach (HRBA). The TN begins with short introductions to the HRBA and its application in situations of armed conflict. It then introduces International Humanitarian Law (IHL) as a relevant legal framework and briefly explains the classification of armed conflict as it relates to IHL. The TN goes on to highlight the complementarity between International Human Rights Law (IHRL) and IHL. Finally, it provides a short description of protection activities as key in reinforcing people’s human rights in times of armed conflict.
