Transatlantic dialogue on international law and armed conflict: a compilation of the blog posts on Intercross, EJIL:Talk! and Lawfare
In the middle of July 2014, a group of academics and government lawyers from both sides of the Atlantic participated in a two-day dialogue on issues related to current challenges pertaining to armed conflict and the applicable law.
The issues discussed included the relationship between IHL and IHRL, accountability for violations of IHL, partnered operations and security cooperation, the legal framework which applies to NIAC and the question of how it can be determined when a NIAC ends and when IHL stops applying.
Some of the participants are writing a series of blog posts on the topics that were addressed during the workshop. Three blogs, Intercross, EJIL:Talk!,and Lawfare, are coordinating and hosting the series. As the posts appear on the various blogs, we will insert their hyperlinks into the post below so that they are all in one place here.
