The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation in Israel and occupied territories and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Faculty of Law, Minerva Center for Human Rights) are calling for papers for the next joint conference, scheduled to take place 12-13 November 2018 in Jerusalem.

This year, “Detention” will be the central topic. We hope to tackle topics ranging from the treatment or prolonged detention of militants or suspects of alleged acts of terrorism (Guantanamo Bay, internments in Iraq, Afghanistan, but also in European countries, detention by multinational forces, peace support operations), treatment of “foreign fighters”, to the most recent controversies caused by immigration detention (including outside conflict zones).

Submission deadline for outline papers is 15 July to the following email:
