Amnesty Winter Talk

Ruth Jamieson: The Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict

There are currently no less than 183 wars ongoing globally and the reality is that civilian casualties now outnumber those of combatants. One of the primary issues of humanitarian concern in all of these conflicts – especially currently in Gaza – is the protection of civilians. Ruth’s talk discusses the following questions: what are the core principles that govern the conduct of war? What are the main categories of war crimes that arise when these are breached? How can these principles be enforced and by whom? 

Ruth worked on the Access to Justice Programmes for the Department of Justice in Canada and then as a lecturer in Criminology at Keele University and Queen’s University, Belfast. The focus of her research and teaching has been on the relationship between war and crime and on political justice and punishment. She edited the book The Criminology of War
