Protection of the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict - Beyond the ILC
7 - 8 March 2019
Aby Warburg Library, Hamburg
The International Law Commission (ILC) included the topic “Protection of the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict” in 2011 on its future program of work. It is now in the stage of finalizing the project by drafting principles that address the phases of pre-conflict, during conflict, and post-conflict in light of different fields of international law, in particular looking into the laws of armed conflict, human rights law and international environmental law.
The workshop held in Hamburg in March 2019 by the University of Hamburg and Lund University attempts to consolidate the legal protection of the environment during the three phases of armed conflict by the laws of armed conflict, human rights law and international environmental law. Presentations address one (or several) of the three conflict phases with regard to environmental protection. Some presentations also zoom out of the three phases and look at different actors and affected groups, for instance, and how they are impacted by the environment and armed conflicts.
