An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ
International Law, Reconciliation and the Road to War
(The Law of War)
Lunch and Learn
November 19, 2020
Naval Captain Bruce King will speak about the laws of armed conflict relating to reconciliation, mediation and war. International law encourages the resolution of disputes between countries. Institutions like the United Nations and International Committee of the Red Cross are dedicated to identifying friction between countries and promoting peaceful resolution of disputes. Where resolution is not possible, the possibility of armed conflict looms. He will focus on the road to war and the reconciliation processes which prevent war.
