Hello everyone! I am excited to share the information posted below regarding the Dean Rusk International Law Center’s latest event, Humanity’s Common Heritage. I had the opportunity to watch Mr. Jean-Marie Henkaerts discuss the updated commentaries on the Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocols at The Humanity House in The Hague. Now, Georgia Law students will have the opportunity to learn about these new developments. I definitely recommend that you all participate in this event!
Humanity’s Common Heritage – norms codified in international humanitarian law treaties to which all countries of the world belong – will be the topic of a conference this Friday, September 23, at the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens, Georgia.
At the core of this daylong event will be the Commentaries on which the ICRC is now working.
