The war in Syria under the laws of armed conflict
ICL Lunch with Cecilie Hellestveit.
Cecilie Hellestveit's book on the war in Syria titled 'Syria: En stor krig i en liten verden' translated in English to 'Syria: A big war in a small world', Pax publishing, 2017.
In this ICL Lunch Cecilie Hellestveit will give an outline of the legal framework applicable to the war in Syria, and discuss some of the most contentious issues, both jus ad bellum and in bello. She will also briefly discuss the conflict in the context of international criminal law.
Pluricourts holds a monthly international criminal law (ICL) lunch, where an invited ICL expert gives a presentation on a topic of their choice, followed by questions from the audience. The aim is to provide a wide-ranging lecture series, giving varied insights into what is happening within the field of ICL today. We invite speakers from different backgrounds, and have had presentations from Norwegian- based and international academics, as well as speakers from local agencies who work with ICL-related issues, such as Kripos and the Norwegian Red Cross. The lunches also function as a meeting point for those who are interested in ICL, allowing for ideas to be exchanged and developed. They are open to the public, and are attended by staff, students and those working in ICL in the Oslo area.
