November 24th, 2015 - The World After Paris – Current Affairs Lecture

On November 24th, 2015, Leiden Law School in cooperation with JFV Grotius organizes a current affairs lecture on the terrorist attacks in Paris of last 13 November.
Are these Europe’s 9/11? How should we interpret the classification of these acts as an act of war? What is the role of the law in answer to these events?
The speakers will, each from their own background and discipline, present their view on this topic. After this there will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion. The meeting is chaired by dean Rick Lawson.
Fred van Staden The impact of western military intervention
Jorrit Rijpma European solidarity after Paris
Pinar Ölcer Criminal Justice and terrorism: an obligation to prevent?
Place: Lorentz hall A1.44, Kamerlingh Onnes Gebouw
The lecture and discussion will take place in English so as to allow everyone to participate.
