Live Seminar: “Extending the Front Line?: The Use of Force and International Law”

octubre 20, 2010

Mañana 21 de octubre, a las 9:30 horas en Boston, las 15:30 p.m. en Madrid (o compruebe aquí el horario en su ciudad), tendrá lugar este seminario online sobre el uso de la fuerza y el derecho internacional organizado por el Humanitarian Law and Policy Forum. Es en inglés y se puede participar gratuitamente, solo hace falta registrarse. Se describe así:

This Live Seminar will examine legal and policy challenges pertaining to the use of force outside traditional zones of military operations, including allegations of “targeted killing” and “extrajudicial killing.” By reviewing recent counterterrorism operations and litigation concerning whether those operations are lawful, this Live Seminar will look into the following questions:

  • How does the jus ad bellum (the law governing the resort to force) and the jus in bello (the law governing conduct of hostilities) interact, if at all, in counterterrorism operations?
  • How, if at all, do contemporary counterterrorism operations affect legal standards pertaining to targeting, detention, interrogation, and fair trials?
  • What characteristics — such as temporal and geographic factors, as well as the intensity of hostilities — determine whether a specific use of force triggers a law enforcement paradigm or a military action paradigm?

These questions will be reviewed by reference to recent counterterrorism operations involving the use of force outside traditional notions of the “battlefield.”
