Just a reminder that the Bristol Law School, University of the West of England Law of Armed Conflict Symposium is on in Bristol this week. I mentioned this back in June, and time has flown so it’s now the symposium week! As I mentioned before, I’m giving a paper in the "accountability" panel on the first day, where I will be discussing the Draft Convention on the Criminal Accountability of United Nations Officials and Experts on Mission. There are nine panels, all dealing with interesting subject areas such as reforming the laws of war, children, and environment and natural resources. Invited speakers include Bill Schabas, Nico Schrijver, Ademola Abass, Bill Bowring, Gerd Hankel and Nigel White. There is a welcome reception and buffet on the Wednesday night, and an optional dinner on the Thursday night. Looking forward to seeing you there if you are going!
