1. Mind the Gap: International Human Rights Law and the Law of Armed Conflict?
Monday, January 25 2010 / 2:30 pm
Tillar House – 2223 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Professors Gabriella Blum and Geoffrey Corn have both recently published provocative articles that stake out quite different positions over the legal uncertainties posed by the applicability of human rights standards to situations where the law of war is applied. To what extent are human rights standards applicable in armed conflicts and in how far is the jurisprudence of regional human rights courts pertinent? For example, does human rights law preclude combatants in war from killing each other’s soldiers, regardless of their role, function, or degree of threat?
