Three upcoming IHL conferences in Europe
In two and a half weeks time three IHL conferences take place on the same day(s). Besides the Bruges Colloquium on selected issues of “vulnerabilities” in times of armed conflicts (on 17-18 October 2013) that was reported on earlier on this blog, the following conferences also take place on the 17th of October:
– The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs organises its yearly conference on the topic of Protection of civilian populations in situations of armed conflict. See here for information, and here for the programme.
In addition, a couple of days earlier, on 15 October 2013, the T.M.C. Asser Institute hosts this Hague Initiative for Law and Armed Conflict event: a book launch of the Liber Amicorum in Memory of Avril McDonald “Armed Conflict and International Law: In Search of the Human Face”, with various speakers and a debate.
All the above interesting events can be attended free of charge, but require registration.
