HILACAt 7pm next Thursday 11th February, I am giving a lecture on the accountability of armed groups under international law at the T.M.C. Asser Institute. In the lecture, I will examine the concept of accountability under international law and the relationship between international human rights law and international humanitarian law when holding armed groups to account. I will also consider when and how the practice of holding armed groups to account under human rights law, as opposed to international humanitarian law, is legitimate.

The lecture is open to the public and you are very welcome to attend.
