ILS International Law and Practice Course 2019 – Lecture 8 with Nicole Sawick
Join the International Law Section on the 8 October 2019 in Sydney for another exciting ILS International Law and Practice Course lecture with guest speaker Nicole Sawick who will speak on the topic of ‘International Humanitarian Law’.
International Humanitarian Law
How to limit and regulate violence in times of war or armed conflict is one of the most pressing challenges for international law. International humanitarian law (IHL), also known as the laws of war or the law of armed conflict, is the legal framework applicable to such situations of armed conflict and war.
As a set of rules and principles it aims, for humanitarian reasons, to limit the effects of armed conflict and governs what can and cannot be done during an armed conflict. At its heart, IHL regulates how wars are fought by balancing two aspects: to weaken the enemy and to limit the suffering.
Nicole is an Australian lawyer with corporate and commercial experience, having worked in both private practice and in-house roles. Outside of the office, Nicole has studied public international law extensively, with a particular interest and focus on international humanitarian law.
Nicole has also had the unique opportunity to work with the Australian Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Geneva, where she gained valuable insights into how the principles of public international law play out in real-time.
