Law of Armed Conflict (LAW-795AC-001)
There are no notices at this time.
This course examines two core prongs of law: the limitation on methods of warfare (such as bans on certain weapons) derived from the Hague tradition, and the protection of people not engaged in combat (especially civilians and prisoners of war) derived from the Geneva tradition. The course will take a scenario-based approach, paying particular attention to recent developments, including the merger of these two traditions, the proliferation of non-international armed conflicts, the promulgation of new treaties banning various weapons and the increasing significance of non-governmental organizations in advocating for such treaties, and the challenge of applying this law to operations against transnational non-state organizations associated with the “war on terrorism” and in the context of new technologies.
