Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with:
Dr. Christian Henderson
on the topic of
The Use of Force by States at the Inter- and Intra-State Levels: Never the Twain Shall Meet, Two Sides of the Same Coin or in Unison?
International law governing the use of force was constructed and continues to exist today predominantly upon the basis of governing inter-state relations. While other international legal regimes, such as the law of armed conflict, are now clearly seen as regulating state conduct at both the ‘international’ and ‘non-international’ level, the law governing the use of force by states at the international level has traditionally – and in many respects continues to be – perceived as very different to that which regulates the use of force by states within the intra-state context. In this talk, Christian Henderson sets out and compares the traditional framework on international law on the use of international force with the tapestry of rules that can be seen as regulating the use of force within the intra-state context, and the interface – including points of convergence and divergence – between these. In doing so, he offers some general comments in regards to a possible union in regulation.
Christian Henderson is currently Professor of International at the University of Sussex within the United Kingdom. He is Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on the Use of Force and International Law and a General Editor of the Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies. He is also a Member of the Council of the International Law Association (British Branch), a Member of the International Law Association’s Committee on the Use of Force, and a Member of the Advisory Council of the Institute for International Peace and Security Law (University of Cologne, Germany). His book The Use of Force and International Law was published by Cambridge University Press in 2018.
