09 Oct Essex lawyer Professor Noam Lubell writes international report on the use of force
Essex lawyer Professor Noam Lubell has helped write what is likely to be a “hugely influential” new international report on the use of force.
The report was commissioned in 2010 by the International Law Association, an international non-governmental organisation tasked with promoting “the study, clarification and development of international law.” The Commission tasked an expert committee to produce a report on Aggression and the Use of Force, a notoriously contested field of law.
Professor Lubell said: “The report is representative of the current state of the law and longstanding debates such as humanitarian intervention and anticipatory self-defence, but also takes account of current and emerging challenges such as cyber operations.”
Eight years on and the report has been published with Professor Lubell, from University of Essex’s School of Law and Human Rights Centre, having played a key role, serving as rapporteur.
