New Francophone blog on international humanitarian law

About the author(s):

Rogier Bartels

Rogier is a researcher at the Netherlands Defence Academy (NLDA) and works at the Dutch National Prosecutor’s Office. He holds LL.M-degrees from Utrecht University and the University of Nottingham. Before taking up his current positions, he was an associate legal officer in Chambers at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, and a legal adviser at the International Humanitarian Law Division of the Netherlands Red Cross.

Rogier is an adjunct-lecturer at the Hague University of Applied Sciences, where he teaches international humanitarian law, and he co-convenes the Hague Initiative for Law and Armed Conflict.

A recent addition to the legal blogosphere is the Francophone blog La Revue de Presse Juridique. Initially a hardcopy newsletter within the French armed forces legal service, it has (since a few months) gone online as a blog. As such it “scrutinizes the integration of law into the conduct of warfare” and aims to “develop dialogue and cooperation between researchers and officials engaged in international humanitarian law practice.”
