Conversations in Conflict Studies: William C. Banks
400A Eggers Hall
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.
