Middlesex University is bringing together top human rights experts in Hendon for a public debate discussing the implications of potential use of force against Syria.
Syria tops the current news and diplomatic agendas, and as America seeks backing for military action, human rights experts are considering what it means for Syria and the Syrian regime.
Panellists include author of several influential human rights books Professor William Schabas, senior human rights lecturer at Middlesex University Dr Elvira Domínguez-Redondo, and activist and humanitarian aid worker Anas Nader.
The debate, titled Syria, Humanitarian Intervention and the Crime of Aggression will discuss the legality and the legitimacy of the use of armed force against the Syrian regime by states acting without authorisation of the United Nations Security Council.
The event will also mark the launch of The Global Institute for the Prevention of Aggression at Middlesex University.
The event takes place on Thursday 12 September 2013 from 1pm-2.30pm in Room CG47, Middlesex University, The Burroughs, Hendon, NW4 4BT.
