The 5th Conference on Peace-Keeping Operations and International Humanitarian Law, held every two years, takes place at Comillas
International Humanitarian Law was a pioneer in the introduction of a perspective on disabilities. This was the main conclusion drawn from the presentation by Juan Manuel García Labajo, General Legal Defense Advisor for the Ministry of Defense, titled "The Protection of the Handicapped in International Law". This lecture opened the 5th Conference on Peace-Keeping Operations and International Humanitarian Law: The Protection of the Handicapped, held at Comillas and organized by the Departments of International Public Law and International Relations, in the Faculty of Law (ICADE). As in previous editions, this activity received a grant, in competition with other proposals, from the General Secretariat for Defense Policy of the Ministry of Defense.
