IHL: Human Rights Law and Security in the Information Age


Presented by the American University International Law Review, in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, American Red Cross, and American Society of International Law

Description:  As stated in the United States’ National Security Strategy, efforts to advance security and prosperity are enhanced when we support certain values that are universal.  Nations that respect human rights and democratic values are more successful and stronger partners, and individuals who enjoy such respect are more able to achieve their full potential.  In order to promote principals and policies for enhancing the integration of human rights into all aspects of security engagement, the American University Washington College of Law will be hosting a symposium on February 17, 2016 which will focus on exploring the security benefits of respecting human rights, both immediate and long term, human rights implications of emerging defense technologies, children in armed conflict, and examining the effect of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on documentation and accountability.
