In this opening lecture, Professor Geoff Gilbert will discuss how, as conflict and repression end and states move towards a period of transition, those who have been displaced can participate in the restoration process.
What governs participation in the country of nationality by persons who are overseas? What are their rights to be included in the democratization and stabilisation process? How might the law of the host state affect participation? What role exists for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)? And what of those excluded from refugee status because of their ties to the rebel movement, when they may be the very ones who have provided an avenue for political dialogue during their displacement?
Geoff Gilbert is Professor of International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at the University of Essex and is currently on secondment to the UNHCR. He was Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Refugee Law from 2002 to 2015. He has written widely on international law and forced displacement, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and international human rights law.

In order for humanitarian lawyers to be better able to understand the circumstances under which the law of armed conflict applies, they should be aware of the basic tactics involved in modern combat.
This course provides an introduction to the regime of sanctions under international law and their effectiveness in addressing contemporary forms of conflict. It addresses the questions related to state responsibility, the pacific settlement of international disputes and the role of the International Court of Justice.
This course examines one of the main purpose of international humanitarian law (IHL), which is to mitigate human suffering caused by war. It enables a careful evaluation of the various IHL rules intended to help protect vulnerable persons, such as civilians and prisoners of war, as well as property during armed conflict.
The Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts project (RULAC) is a unique online portal that identifies and classifies all situations of armed violence that amount to an armed conflict under international humanitarian law (IHL). It is primarily a legal reference source for a broad audience, including non-specialists, interested in issues surrounding the classification of armed conflicts under IHL.
