A discussion with Tom Dannenbaum, a professor of international law at The Fletcher School at Tufts University, on his work on the war crime of starvation. We delve into the proper interpretation of the IHL prohibition on starvation as a method of warfare, and the war crime of intentionally using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare in the Rome Statute of the ICC, considering what precisely constitutes the criminal act, and what exactly is the nature of the wrong that the crime seeks to address. We go on to discuss how this should inform our understanding of the Israeli siege of Gaza ..read more

JIB/JAB - Episode 28: The War in Ukraine - Jus ad Bellum Implications

A conversation about the Russian invasion of Ukraine with Professors Eliav Lieblich of Tel Aviv University, Marko Milanovic of the University of Nottingham, and Ingrid Wuerth of Vanderbilt Law School. We focus on how we should be thinking about the implications of this war for the jus ad bellum regime and the collective security system going forward. While the invasion is clearly an unlawful and egregious act of aggression, have unlawful uses of force by Western states served to weaken the legal regime? Has our focus on humanitarian issues and human rights law weakened the system? Is this war ..read more

2y ago
A conversation with Sam Moyn, Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale Law School and Professor of History at Yale University. We discuss his recent and acclaimed book "Humane," which, drawing on an insight of Leo Tolstoy, argues that as the United States has come to focus on humanizing armed conflict in the last few decades, its interest in constraining the incidence of war has declined. We discuss the historical accounts that form the core premises of this argument, and dig into the nature and implications of the inverse relationship that forms the center of his argument. As the invasion of Ukrain ..read more

JIB/JAB-Episode 25: Aslı Bâli on Economic Sanctions and the Laws of War

by JIB/JAB - The Laws of War Podcast

A conversation with Aslı Bâli, Professor of Law at UCLA in the United States, on the lawfulness of comprehensive autonomous economic sanctions, and the relationship they may have with the laws of war. Economic sanctions can cause the kind of humanitarian harm and economic disruption that could be unlawful under IHL, or constitute a prohibited use of force if caused by cyber operations or naval blockade, and are also potentially in violation of human rights law - so why are they so often considered a legitimate and benign alternative to the use of force? We explore in a fascinating conversation ..read more
