Research Seminar

Wednesday 22nd November 2pm with Professor Susan Breau, University of Reading, venue; Bridge House

The seminar will discuss The European Migrant Crisis and the Recording of Civilian Casualties – an uneasy relationship.

A group of scholars convening at LSE recently released a ‘Last Rights Legal Statement’ which has influenced the work of the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions in her recent report entitled ‘Unlawful Death of Refugees and Migrants’. Susan Breau was one of the authors of the legal statement and will discuss the thorny legal issues of the threshold and classification of armed conflict and the relationship of IHL to the dead and disappeared in the Mediterranean.
