The U.S. Army
This unique series of events relating to military institutions and the law aims to improve our students’ knowledge of military actors and operations and build bridges between the military and civilian worlds.
Military guests – on active duty, retired or from the reserve – will discuss military institutions, their missions as well as operational and legal challenges they face in their daily work.
Each briefing is divided into two parts: a presentation aimed at equipping students with basic knowledge on the selected theme, and a discussion, where the guest speaker engages with students on the challenges raised by the theme.
This initiative is coordinated by Pavle Kilibarda, Teaching Assistant at the Geneva Academy.
This event marks the launch of Dr Katharine Fortin’s new book ‘The Accountability of Armed Groups under Human Rights Law’.
Our Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) online database features new non-international armed conflicts (NIACs) that are taking place in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Somalia. It provides, for each conflict, the factual and methodological basis for its classification and identifies the parties and the applicable international law. Visitors can discover these new NIACs either by browsing the map or by browsing conflicts by type or region.
We added nine military occupations to our Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) online database. Visitors can discover them either by browsing the map or by browsing conflicts per types or regions.
