International Humanitarian Law and Emerging Technologies: An Online Conversation

Tomorrow, May 8, 2014, from 12:00 - 1:00pm EDT, there will be a global virtual conference on International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and emerging technologies. The conference is sponsored by the American Society of International Law’s Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict and American University Washington College of Law Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law.

The expert discussion will focus on the themes evoked in this year’s winning paper from the Fourth Annual IHL Student Writing Competition, which was written by Michele Krech on, “Technological Asymmetry and the Law of Armed Conflict: The Intersection of Law and Politics in the Creation of Differentiated State Obligations,” and relevant emerging issues which go beyond the paper.

Speakers include:

  • Prof. Laurie Blank, Director, International Humanitarian Law Clinic, Emory Law School
  • Prof. Chris Jenks, SMU Dedman School of Law
  • Michele Krech, Winner of the 2014 IHL Student Writing Competition
