Later this week, two dialogues are slated at ASU Law School that speak to global concerns about the limits and obligations of humanitarian law.
On Friday, Feb. 14, a UC Berkeley law professor discusses “Syria and the Future of Humanitarian Intervention.” Here’s a description:
“For supporters of humanitarian intervention and its younger cousin, the responsibility to protect, the years of violence in Syria have been a source of frustration and despair. In this presentation, Saira Mohamed, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley School of Law, explores what can be learned from the international community’s anemic response and whether there is any future for the notion that the international community has a duty to intervene to protect human rights.”
More detail is here.
That is followed on Saturday, Feb. 15, with the school’s third annual international humanitarian law workshop, which “features lectures and hands-on exercises.”
If any readers plan to attend either or both event and would like to write a follow-up blog post, contact me at email@example.com.
