Is Bombing Syrian Hospitals a Crime?
What do we mean by “International Law?”
And why are there so many human rights violations everywhere we look?
Join Alice in an informal conversation about international law, who makes it and enforces it, who is subject to it and what happens when it is violated. Then ask as many questions as you like!
The speaker will be Alice Panepinto. This will be a wonderful opportunity to explore this key issue with someone who has wide experience in many aspects of the application of international law and justice, especially in Palestine.
Light Refreshments will be available at the event.
Alice is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Human Rights in Practice at Warwick Law School, University of Warwick. Her research spans across human rights and international law, with a strong interdisciplinary interest in comparative law, socio-legal studies and Islamic legal systems.
Her current research focuses on transitional justice and the right to the truth both globally and in Muslim-majority contexts. She is also part of the editorial team of Lacuna, the Centre’s human rights magazine (www.lacuna.org.uk).
Previously she was based in Jerusalem as a 2014 UN-DESA Fellow in Human Rights (assigned to the Italian Development Cooperation) working on a range of international law and justice sector issues. Alice completed her PhD at Durham University Law School, defending a thesis on ‘Relocating Transitional Justice from International Law to Muslim-majority Legal Systems: Concepts, Approaches and Ways Forward’.
Her teaching experience includes human rights, public international law and international security. She is also starting to reflect more academically on her time in Palestine.
