Two alumna of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights – Dr Jelena Plamenac and Charlotte Labrosse – received prestigious distinctions at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) in April this year.
Dr Jelena Plamenac – who graduated from our LLM back in 2007 – has been awarded the 2022 Francis Lieber Prize for her book ‘Unravelling Unlawful Confinement in Contemporary Armed Conflicts’ (Brill 2022) which discusses belligerent's detention practices in Syria, Ukraine and Afghanistan.
The Francis Lieber Prize is awarded annually by the American Society of International Law's Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict to the authors of publications which the judges consider to be outstanding in the field of law and armed conflict.
Charlotte Labrosse – who graduated from our LLM in 2021 – won the 2022 International Refugee Law Student Writing Competition with her LLM paper ‘Humanitarian Visas as a Legal Pathway to International Protection in Europe’. Written under the supervision of Professor Vincent Chetail, the paper discusses states' obligations under the principle of non-refoulement when assessing applications for ‘humanitarian’ or ‘asylum’ visas.
Thanks to the support of the Global Migration Centre of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies – headed by professor Chetail – Charlotte could travel to the ASIL Annual meeting and receive her prize in person.

We look forward to welcoming our graduating students, their friends, families and our professors to the 2022 Graduation Ceremony.
This event marks the launch of our LLM alumna Ilia Siatitsa’s book ‘Serious violations of human rights, On the emergence of a new special regime’ published by Oxford University Press.
This online short course will cover the ‘nuts and bolts’ of implementation, including national legislation, dissemination and training, and discuss the mechanisms such as the International Fact-Finding Commission, as set out in the treaties.
This online short course focuses on the specific issues that arise in times of armed conflict regarding the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights. It addresses key issues like the applicability of human rights in times of armed conflict; the possibilities of restricting human rights under systems of limitations and derogations; and the extraterritorial application of human rights law.
This project aims at staying abreast of the various military technology trends; promoting legal and policy debate on new military technologies; and furthering the understanding of the convergent effects of different technological trends shaping the digital battlefield of the future.
