(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)
I am proud to announce the launch conference of the Jus Post Bellum project of the Grotius Centre, Leiden Law. Entitled “‘Jus - Post - Bellum’: Mapping the normative foundations”, it will take place May 31 to June 1, 2012, at the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands.
The first of several project seminars, this conference, as detailed here, will seek to clarify the meaning and content of the concept, including its relationship to and distinction from the field of transitional justice and historical and modern approaches towards the definitions of key notions, such as “jus”, “post” and “bellum”. These were some of the topics I briefly addressed during my presentation at the recent annual meeting of the American Society of International Law, and I’m excited about the opportunity to continue the discussion in The Hague.
The launch conference will include five panels:
► Situating the Concept
► Mapping the Normative Framework(s)
► Politics and Practice of Jus Post Bellum
► Temporal Dimensions of Jus Post Bellum
► The ‘Jus’ in ‘Jus Post Bellum”
► Roundtable discussion on ‘At War’s End,’ by Vanderbilt Law Professor Larry May.
Conference speakers and participants include the following female participants:
► Freya Baetens (Leiden Law)
