The commitment and role of the international community in fighting Islamic State (IS/ISIL) are a daily item on the news. Therefore the Cluster for Conflict, Rule of Law and Society is holding a Workshop on ‘Contemporary Issues in International Law’ on Tuesday 28th October 2014, 10-13.00 in EB206.
The workshop brings together Undergraduate and Postgraduate students studying International Law and those interested in the issues of terrorism and the use of force in general. It will be a forum for discussion and debate on
- the situation in Ukraine/Russia (including the annexation of Crimea and the downing of Malaysia Airline MH17)
- the situation involving IS/Iraq/Syria, and
- will ask what the status quo of the ‘Responsibility to Protect’ (R2P) doctrine is.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Melanie Klinkner and Sascha Dov Bachmann, Associate Professor in International Law.
There will be tea, coffee and biscuits and interested staff and students are very welcome to join.
