Stipendiat Marte Kjørven innleder om temaet "Finansinstitusjonenes formidling av investeringer: Fra uavhengig aksjemegling til selvsentrert salg - en faktisk eller rettslig utvikling?".
One does not need to look beyond the borders of Europe to see that there are many contemporary challenges for international humanitarian law (IHL) today.
Highlighting developments in ongoing armed conflicts, the lecture first gives a brief overview of contemporary challenges for IHL. It then offers a more detailed analysis of three major legal challenges: a) questions of targeting and detention of persons in non-international armed conflicts, b) new technologies used in warfare, and c) securing civilian access to humanitarian assistance.
Each of these particular challenges is discussed also in relation the broader challenges for IHL to establish an effective relationship with other bodies of international law (primarily international human rights law); and to regulate armed conflicts that involve evermore non-state actors and become ever more asymmetric.
The trial lecture is 45 minutes and then 15 minutes for questions and answers.
