War and International Law: Perspectives on Current Conflicts

Event date/time: 

Tuesday, November 14, 2023 - 2:00pm


Online via Zoom

This panel will provide insights into international legal frameworks and mechanisms around which to help attendees make their own sense of current international and foreign conflicts that are affecting the UMass community. Our goal is to identify ethical and legal common ground on the protection of civilians, just war theory, and mechanisms that allow for individual and state accountability for violations of international law.
