1. The War in Ukraine, International Law, and Regional Peace and Security Webinar. The European Society of International Law’s Peace and Security Interest Group in association with the University of Zürich’s Institute for International and Foreign Constitutional Law and the Hertie School’s Centre for Fundamental Rights are hosting a webinar on The War in Ukraine, International Law, and Regional Peace and Security on Wednesday, 25 January 2023, 17:00 CET. With no end in sight to the war in Ukraine, this webinar will analyse different regional responses to core issues of peace and security, including the prohibition of the use of force and territorial conquest, sanctions and their impact on food/energy security, migration governance, and accountability for international crimes. To what extent is the war in Ukraine a transformational moment for peace and security law? Will it decentralize global governance in these areas, promote new (and old) cross-regional alliances, or resurrect multilateralism? Register here.
