Global movement of arms conference poster
The University of Saskatchewan, College of Law and the Canadian Red Cross present the 2019 International Humanitarian Law (IHL) academic conference: Global Movement of Arms. Recognising that arms and ammunition fuel armed conflicts all over the world, the Saskatchewan IHL Conference will focus on the flow and trade of arms, including looking at the recent accession of Canada to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and what it means for domestic law. The Conference will begin with an introduction to IHL, linking the topic to the law of armed conflict and be followed by a panel. This event will bring together experts in the field, including academics and practitioners to discuss the global movement of arms and how IHL protects the dignity and lives of vulnerable people around the world.
