Every year, because of the widespread availability and misuse of weapons, hundreds of thousands of civilians are displaced, injured, raped or killed. As long as weapons are too easily available, serious violations of international humanitarian law will be made more likely and the provision of humanitarian assistance threatened.
In the aftermath of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) Negotiating Conference in July 2012, the ANU Centre for Military and Security Law, Australian Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross invite you to an event addressing this vital issue. Dr Rob McLaughlin will chair an expert panel including:
- Dr Stephanie Koorey (Adjunct Research Associate, Global Terrorism Research Centre, Monash University)
- Netta Goussac (Senior Legal Officer, Office of International Law, Attorney-General’s Department)
- Monica Silverwood (Legal Adviser, International Committee of the Red Cross)
