This three-day international conference, held at the University of Glasgow, May 11-13 2006, brings together international lawyers, historians and political scientists to examine the contemporary situations in Iraq, the occupied Palestinian territories of the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza, and place them in the perspective of the experiences of Japan and Germany after the Second World War. The aim is to delineate the historical development and current status of occupation practice, and also the substantive content of the international law that regulates the military occupation of territory.
It is organised by the Scottish Centre for War Studies (University of Glasgow), the Sir Joseph Hotung Programme on Law, Human Rights and Peace building in the Middle East, School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) and the Lieber Society (American Society of International Law).
Venue: University of Glasgow, Main Building - Senate Room
Date: 11-13 May 2006
