Human Rights During Armed Conflict - A Military Perspective of Law, Policy and Practice with General Sir Nicholas Patrick Carter
International human rights law, along with national policy, guides and constrains how British armed forces plan, coordinate and conduct operations during armed conflict. The relationship between the demands of the mission and the rules governing military practice has been and remains at the forefront of judicial, academic and public scrutiny for some time. However, often missing from these discussions are the perspectives of the military personnel tasked with ensuring operations are planned and conducted in accordance with law and policy. Drawing on his experience in Afghanistan, General Sir Nicholas Carter, the Chief of the General Staff of the UK Army, will illustrate some of the ethical issues and conundrums that present themselves in armed conflict and offer his insights on the role and relevance of human rights during war.
When: Wed 21 March, 19:10 – 21:00
Where: Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT
