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 annual conference, co-organized with the Human Rights Centre of University of Essex, provides a space to discuss the legal and policy issues that have arisen in the past and the current year in relation to armed conflicts situations.
To close the third edition of the Current Issues in Armed Conflict Conference, Helen Durham, Director of Law and Policy at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will deliver a keynote address.
