Breakfast Seminar on International Law and War Ethics

Beyond Operation Protective Edge

Thursday 12th November, 8:30 to 10:00.
Institute for Futures Studies, Holländargatan 13, Stockholm

Last summer’s conflict in Gaza, known as Operation Protective Edge, raised several important questions of international law and war ethics. This November, the Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace, in collaboration with the Cegla Centre for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law at University of Tel Aviv and the Institute for Futures Studies, will gather academics, officials and experts for a seminar to both discuss the general principles of conflicts and address specific issues raised by Operation Protective Edge, such as warnings to civilians by telephone, civilians’ obligation to evacuate, and the wounding of human shields. The results of the discussions are now presented at a breakfast seminar (in English), which is open to all. The panel members are Adil Ahmad Haque (Law, Rutgers), Pnina Sharvit Baruch (Institute for National Security Studies, Israel) and Sari Nusseibeh (Philosophy, Al-Quds)

The seminar is free to attend, but registration is required. Simple breakfast is served from 8:00. To register, please follow this link.

Update: the seminar is now available online here.
