Gloria Gaggioli is a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Professor at the Law Faculty of the University of Geneva.
Her work focuses on issues related to the interplay between international humanitarian law and international human rights law, the right to life and the use of force, including the conduct of hostilities, law enforcement and self-defence. She is currently leading a four-year research project funded by the SNF on ‘Preventing and Combating Terrorism and Violent Extremism: Towards an Empirico-Legal Approach’.
Prior to joining the University of Geneva, she served as Legal Adviser in the legal division of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and is the author of the ICRC report The Use of Force in Armed Conflicts: Interplay between the Conduct of Hostilities and Law Enforcement Paradigms.
Professor Gaggioli also worked as Visiting Professor at Lille Catholic University, External Lecturer at the University of Copenhagen and Researcher/Teaching Assistant at the Geneva Academy and University of Geneva.
She wrote her PhD thesis (summa cum laude, Pedone 2013) on ‘The Reciprocal Influence between Human Rights Law and Humanitarian Law in the Light of the Right to Life’.
This intensive course on international humanitarian law aims to provide students with the legal knowledge and the analytical and argumentative skills necessary to understand/interpret the rules protecting victims of armed conflicts and regulating means and methods of warfare; and critically apply them in contemporary armed conflict situations.
This course discusses the extent to which states may limit and/or derogate from their international human rights obligations in order to prevent and counter terrorism and thus protect persons under their jurisdiction.
