The protective reach of the law of armed conflict
On 24 November 2016, Dr Giulia Pinzauti, Assistant Professor of Public International Law at the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, spoke on “The protective reach of the law of armed conflict” at the PIL Lunchtime Discussion Group at All Souls College in Oxford.
Is conduct contrary to fundamental protections of International Humanitarian Law still a war crime if both perpetrator and victim are affiliated with the same party to the conflict? In her presentation, Dr Pinzauti argued that there is no general “adverse party” requirement for war crimes, provided that the nexus with the armed conflict is demonstrated.
