Property Protection under Extraordinary Circumstances

with Joachim Åhman and Crina Baltag


The Stockholm Centre for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with
Joachim Åhman
Property Protection under Extraordinary Circumstances

This talk focuses on the balance between property protection – as regulated in Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the European Convention on Human Rights – and the need for the State to take extraordinary measures under extraordinary circumstances (e.g., in civil crises and under threats of war). The talk will elaborate on which type of protection property is given in general, whether the protection could differ depending on the circumstances, and how the protection relates to the State’s possibilities to act under extraordinary circumstances.
