Conversations in Conflict Studies: William C. Banks

400A Eggers Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Professor Banks will focus on recent trends that show convergence of norms between International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights Law (HRL); between the jus ad bellum (justness of the cause) and jus en bello (IHL); and between international criminal law and domestic law. According to him, the convergence creates some serious problems in regulating conflicts but it also reflects adaptations that may make conflict more humane. Professor Banks is recognized internationally as an expert in constitutional law, national security law, and counterterrorism.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
