Joint IHL Forum - October 2013

The Joint International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Forum


ALMA and the Radzyner School of Law of the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) would like to invite you to the next session of the Joint International Humanitarian Law Forum. The session will be held on October 30, 2013, at 18:30 in room S4 in the IDC.

In this session Adv. Yaniv Roznai will present his new paper:

"Cracking the Nuc" in the Legal Field:

An Israeli Attack on Iran's Nuclear Facilities From an International Law Perspective

This paper examines the legality of a possible Israeli pre-emptive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. Various arguments are examined, including whether such an attack violates the prohibition on the use of force and whether such an attack is a legal exercise of self-defense. [Forthcoming in She'arei Mishpat Law Review, 2013].

The Hebrew article is attached to this invitation. An earlier and shorter English version of the article was published in the California International Law Journal, Vol. 18, No. 2, Spring 2010

Adv. Yaniv Roznai is a PhD Candidate at the London School of Economics and Political Science and a visiting researcher at the Princeton University, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Following the lectures there will be an open round-table discussion.

*Please note that the lecture and the discussion are scheduled to be conducted in Hebrew. (However, per sufficient requests, the speaker is willing to conduct the lecture and the discussion in English.)
