Civilians continue to suffer as a result of war. While some of these deaths and injuries may be entirely accidental or dismissed as the inevitable cost of war, others are the result of deliberate attacks on the civilian population or the excessive use of force, so could qualify as war crimes.
This roundtable will consider the challenges investigating collateral damage in contemporary conflict, bringing together a panel of experts who all have direct experience investigating war crimes, prosecuting the cases, and campaigning for the victims.
Panel of Experts:
• Marc Garlasco – Former senior military advisor on the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria
• Thomas Nash – Co-founder of New Zealand Alternative and Adjunct Lecturer, Massey University
• Associate Professor Treasa Dunworth – University of Auckland, Faculty of Law
• Deborah Manning – Barrister and Law Honours graduate from the University of Auckland.
