International law seminar: Self-defence as an operational concept

Research Group International Law and Governance in cooperation with Research Group Human Rights, Armed Conflicts, and the Law of Peace and Security 

Speaker: Camilla Guldahl Cooper, Associate Professor, PhD, Norwegian Defense University College
