The Criminal Implications of International Armed Conflicts – A theoretical and practical approach
As conflicts all over the world increase and news of atrocities committed continuously disturb the international community, questions on how to prosecute those responsible become more and more prevalent. Additionally, the term “International Criminal Court” has been a topic of discussion, especially with the wars waging all over the world and possible war crimes being committed. However, the pathway of these crimes to the ICC or any international prosecution of individuals as a consequence to their actions is less known.

But how could such international trials be avoided in the first place? The Law of Armed Conflict already offers a thorough set of rules on how war can be waged. However, one needs legal personnel proficient in these laws to avoid criminal action in war and appropriate training to ensure these lessons can be maintained even in the hectic environment of the battlefield.

Speakers Prof. Dr. Robert Esser of the University of Passau, MAJ Jason Young of the US Army in Hohenfels and Sophia-Marie Klingler of the DAJV will share their insights on these two topics as well as experiences and look forward to a lively discussion with participants afterwards - whether it be in person or virtually via Zoom.

The event is open to all interested parties, from students to lawyers and will be held in English.

Photography, audio, and video recording may occur at any DAJV events.
