New EJIL:Live! Joseph Weiler and Yishai Beer Discuss the Implications and Risks Involved in Revitalizing the Concept of Military Necessity

Published on March 23, 2016        Author: 

The latest EJIL: Live! episode features the Editor-in-Chief of the EJIL, Professor Joseph Weiler, speaking with Professor Yishai Beer, from the Radzyner School of Law in Israel, about his provocative and controversial article, “Humanity Considerations Cannot Reduce War’s Hazards Alone: Revitalizing the Concept of Military Necessity”, which appears in EJIL, Volume 26, Issue 4. Professor Beer argues that there is an artificial tension between military necessity and humanity in the law of armed conflict. Military professionalism, he maintains, can act as a constraint on the brutal use of force and can better help to achieve the objectives of humanitarian law. The conversation explores the implications and risks involved in Professor Beer’s proposal to revitalize the concept of military necessity.
