Proportionality in Armed Conflicts

Date(s) of Conference:

November 21-23, 2010

Location:

Minerva Center for Human Rights
Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Jerusalem, Israel

Description:

The conference aims to critically examine the scope, meaning and application of the principle of proportionality in times of armed conflict under existing law and practice.  It seeks both to improve our understanding of existing norms and identify areas of future normative development (and, if possible, institutional development).

By studying the contents of the principle of proportionality under both jus ad bellum and jus in bello, the conference hopes to contribute to the development of law and scholarship in this crucial field of international law.

Call for Papers:

  • One or two-page proposal for an article and presentation, along with a brief CV should be submitted via email no later than 10 April 2010
  • Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by May 10, 2010
  • Short written contributions (of approx. 8-10 pages) based on the selected proposals will be expected by November 1, 2010
