Last week, a blogpost was published by our guest researcher Daniel Møgster on EJIL:Talk!, the blog of the European Journal of International Law. The post examines General Comment no. 36 on the right to life, adopted by the Human Rights Committee, and the extraterritorial application of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Click the link and find out how the General Comment represents a step in the direction of universal human rights protection!
Only 2,5 week until the 4th IHL Clinic Exchange Conference will take place, this year in Rome, Italy. We are looking forward to engaging again with our colleagues from the IHL Clinics at RomaTre, Emory University, המרכז הבינתחומי הרצליה - IDC Herzliya and Ruhr-Universität Bochum, as well as with our cooperation partner the International Committee of the Red Cross. One of the themes that will be addressed during the lectures and workshops of the conference is the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute.
