Experts Analyze Role of International Humanitarian Law in Modern Conflicts

Modern warfare presents new challenges to those who must interpret international humanitarian law, visiting experts said during a recent seminar at the Law School.

Members of the U.S. policy community, international relief workers, military officials and others met in Charlottesville from May 28-30 for “Applying International Humanitarian Law to Today’s Conflicts,” a seminar sponsored by the Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Law School’s Human Rights Program.
