Webinar on the Extraterritorial Application of Human Rights Law

On 15 March, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law is organising a webinar on the Latest Developments in the Extraterritorial Application of Human Rights Law. The speakers of the event are Lea Raible (Grasgow University), Aurel Sari (Exeter University) and Ralph Wilde (University College London). The event will be chaired by Shaheed Fatima QC (Blackstone Chambers).

Here is the description of the event by the organisers:
The question of whether and to what extent human rights obligations apply extraterritorially, notably in situations of armed conflict, continues to be hugely contested. This event will review some important recent developments, beginning with the European Court of Human Rights judgment in Georgia v. Russia (II), delivered on the 21st of January. Speakers will also discuss last year's communications before the CRC Committee concerning the repatriation of children whose parents are linked to terrorism activities, as well as, in the UK, the controversial Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Operations) Bill, which passed an important legislative stage on the 20th of January.

Participation in the webinar is free of charge. The information about the registration is here
