New issue of Journal of Human Rights and International Legal Discourse on relationship between IHL and IHRL

About the author(s):

Katharine Fortin is an Associate Professor at Utrecht University where she teaches IHL and IHRL. Before joining Utrecht University, she worked at the ICTY, ICC and Norton Rose Fulbright. She is the author of The Accountability of Armed Groups under Human Rights Law (Oxford University Press, 2017) which won the 2018 Lieber Prize. She has written widely about the framework of law that applies to armed groups in non-international armed conflicts and is one of the editors of the Armed Groups and International Law blog.

This week, the new issue of the Journal of Human Rights and International Legal Discourse that I edited together with Steven Dewulf from Antwerp University was published. The issue is devoted to exploring new developments regarding the relationship between human rights law and international humanitarian law.

With two headline articles by Professor Andrew Clapham and Jean-Marie Henckaerts & Ellen Nohle, the articles (which include articles by fellow blog editors Rogier Bartels and Annyssa Bellal) explore themes such as conflict-driven displacment, international criminal law, armed groups, soft law and jurisdiction.
