Luigi Corrias, Assistant Professor of Philosophy of Law at VU University Amsterdam, will discuss his project on humanity in international law.
Breaking the Bonds of Humanity: Dehumanization in International Law
What does the appeal to humanity in international law mean? This central question encompasses three sub-questions:
1. What does the experience of dehumanization in international law tell us about the harm involved?
2. What does an analysis of this harm reveal about a specific sub-field of international law?
3. How can the international legal order respond to dehumanization?
