Assassination, Necropolitics and International Law: Global Inequality and Violence, 4 March 2021

Assassination, Necropolitics and International Law: Global Inequality and Violence

This seminar will host three scholars and experts on violence in the international legal order: Professor Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on Extra-Judicial, Summary and Arbitrary Executions and Director of Columbia University’s Global Freedom of Expression Project; Professor Kevin Jon Heller, Professor of International Law and Security, University of Copenhagen; and Assistant Professor Noura Erakat, Department of Africana Studies, Rutgers University, USA.

The panel will discuss assassinations in the current international legal order, whether there is a growing number of illegal killings permitted by international law; the problem of remedies for assassinations; the role of geo-politics and necropolitics in thinking about the causes and motivations for assassinations, as well as how assassinations have been treated historically.
