In his new book War (Oxford University Press), Professor Andrew Clapham discusses the relevance of the concept of war today and examines how our notions about war continue to influence how we conceive rights and obligations in national and international law. More generally, the book considers what happens when someone considers themselves to be at war.
The book provides an overall account of the contemporary law of war and a detailed inquiry into whether states should be able to continue to claim so-called ‘belligerent rights’ over their enemies and those accused of breaching expectations of neutrality, including those ancient rights connected to booty, blockade and enemy property at sea.
Professor Clapham will discuss the main arguments in the book with Professor Gloria Gaggioli and the audience.
The book launch will take place in Geneva and online on Zoom.

This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, analyses the main international and regional norms governing the international protection of refugees. It notably examines the sources of international refugee law, including the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, and their interaction with human rights law and international humanitarian law.
