COVID-19 has upended life for people all around the globe, but the impact has been hardest on those who are most vulnerable, including people living in conflict zones. During the pandemic, armed conflicts have continued to rage within the OSCE area and have resulted in thousands of deaths over the past year.

What can the OSCE and parliamentarians do to address these devastating humanitarian consequences? What role should the OSCE be playing in addressing any deficiencies with regards to humanitarian law? How can governments best address the long-term consequences of displacement?

Join the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly for a discussion of these questions and the sharing of best practices on how to effectively assist civilians trapped in conflict zones and others affected by conflicts.

The meeting will feature welcoming remarks from Cypriot parliamentarian Kyriakos Hadjiyianni, Chair of the OSCE PA’s Committee on Democracy, Human Rights and Humanitarian Questions; and presentations by Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, and Ambassador Yaşar Halit Çevik, Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine; followed by an open discussion with parliamentarians from across the OSCE area.

The event will be streaming here, as well as at the OSCE PA's Facebook and YouTube pages.
