Dr Amrita Mukherjee discusses human rights at The Law Society

14 May 2015 |

On 5 May Dr Amrita Mukherjee joined fellow experts on a panel debate at the Law Society in London.

The event titled ‘Human rights and the Theatre of War’ discussed multiple questions and topics on human rights law and war. 

Discussion topics include:

  • Are there an increasing number of legal claims being brought against the MoD under human rights law?
  • Does the application of civilian norms to military conduct lead to a surge in claims?
  • Should rules of engagement be subject to the same laws as those applied to civilians in non-conflict situations?
  • Is there an appropriate balance between legal protections of those whose human rights have been violated and protecting the public?

The Law Society is an independent professional body that represents and supports solicitors.
