upcoming events – IHL at Berkeley (April 9-10)

February 25, 2010

* West Coast International Humanitarian Law Teaching Workshop, sponsored by the ICRC and Berkeley Law (April 9-10, at Berkeley)

For those who are interested in developing an IHL course, or refining one they already teach, this is going to be a terrific event. Indeed, it should be really interesting even if one does not plan to teach an IHL-oriented course (note that one session talks about ways to integrate IHL into other courses). See the attached flyer and agenda for details.

[Note that this is a different event from the upcoming “national security law scholarly workshop/IHL training” event taking place in Austin on April 1st and 2nd. Details as to the Austin event will circulate later today.]

audio for the January 25th “Mind the Gap” IHL presentation

I posted about this event last week. The audio is now available:

1.     Mind the Gap: International Human Rights Law and the Law of Armed Conflict?

Event Information
Monday, January 25 2010 / 2:30 pm
Tillar House – 2223 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Event Link

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?
