Description

Lex Pacificatoria: Using Law to End Wars

This lecture by Professor Christine Bell looks at the rise of negotiated settlements as a tool for ending contemporary wars and the legal, political and moral controversies that those settlements cause. It draws on her work arguing that a new 'lex pacificatoria' or law of the peacemakers has developed as a way of managing these controversies. Chaired by Professor Dorothy Miell, Vice Principal and Head of the College of Humanities and Social Science.
