3) War and Peace in the 21st Century – The Lifecycle of Modern Armed Conflicts. It has been a longstanding belief that armed conflicts in their traditional sense are specters of the past. However, in February 2022, the unthinkable happened: one state has used its armed force to attack another on the continent of Europe. The war between Russia and Ukraine has reignited old debates on the right to wage war (ius ad bellum) as well as rules to abide by in an armed conflict (ius in bello) along with their ramifications in international criminal law. The conference aims not only to provide a platform for these notions but to also delve deeper into how conflicts can be prevented and resolved, either through diplomatic or judicial methods and how modern peace treaties can be envisioned. Submission by July 15, 2022. The Department of International Law at Ludovika – University of Public Service, Budapest, Hungary. Ludovika Campus (Budapest, Hungary), 23 September 2022.

The workshop intends to look at a selection of non-use measures (e.g., bans, moratoria, closed areas) to better understand how specific non-use measures were adopted (or not) and with what effects, and to consider the potential for success of proposals currently under discussion or consideration. Non-use measures related to four themes will be discussed: marine living resources, Antarctica, areas beyond national jurisdiction at sea, and the atmosphere and outer-space. The deadline to submit an abstract is July 31, 2022.
