The HPCR is hosting an interesting web event on Libya which is taking place tomorrow. Event details are pasted below:

Live Seminar 32: The Crisis in Libya: The International Response
Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at 9:30 a.m. (EDT-Boston)

This Live Seminar will examine the modalities through which (elements of) the international community may respond to the ongoing crisis in Libya. Amid reports of violence, refugee and IDP flows, and other forms of instability, this Live Seminar will address the following questions:

  • How may the situation be qualified under international law, and what legal and policy consequences result from such a qualification?
  • What tactical and strategic dilemmas arise for the international community, especially in terms of prevention and mitigation of civilian harm?
  • What legal and policy frameworks provide a basis through which the international community may respond to the situation in order to repress violations?

These questions will be examined by reference to the complex crisis in Libya.

Naz Modirzadeh (Associate Director of HPCR) and Claude Bruderlein (Director) will host the discussion.


Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor, International Criminal Court (Keynote)
Amb. R. Nicholas Burns, The Sultan of Oman Professor of the Practice of International Relations, Harvard Kennedy School of Government (Principle Presenter)
