Monica Feria-Tinta will be addressing the topic “Implications of the Diversity of the rules on the Use of Force for Change in Law” at an event organised by the American Society of International Law (Africa Interest Group) on 27 September 2021.
She will be joining Professor Naz Modirzadeh (Harvard), Professor Tom Ruys (University of Ghent), Associate Professor Mohamed Helal (Moritz College of Law) and Professor Dapo Akande’s (Oxford University). The panel will be moderated by Ijeoma Onnogbu, Co-chair, ASIL African Interest Group.
The panel will engage with Professor Dapo Akande’s recent publication, “Implications of the Diversity of the Rules on the Use of Force for Change in Law”, published in the latest edition of the European Journal of International Law. Professor Akande’s article analyses the structural conditions within the jus ad bellum that affect whether and how that law changes. In particular, it examines how the diversity of the rules that form the law relating to the use of force affects the development of rules permitting the use of force to protect human rights.
This is a topical subject, particularly important to examine, in the aftermath of the intervention in Afghanistan.
The event will take place at 11:00 ET/ 16:00 BST on 27 September 2021.
