Rapid-Response Seminar: European Court Decisions on Human Rights in Iraq

21st July 2011

This rapid-response seminar will consist of a panel discussion on the recent decisions of the Grand Chamber of the European Court in Al-Skeini and others v UK and Al-Jedda v UK. In these judgments, the Court held that the United Kingdom has to conduct investigations into a number of civilian deaths and that British forces in Iraq have violated some of their obligations under European human rights law. As a result, these decisions have crucial implications, in particular with regard to the extra-territorial application of the European Convention on Human Rights. Our speakers will discuss theses cases and the consequences of the Grand Chamber rulings.
