On 16 and 17 February 2012, the Faculty of Law at Sweden’s Lund University hosted a Workshop on Protection of the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict to examine the relevance and adequacy of the existing regime for environmental protection during armed conflict as well as the ability of other international legal mechanisms to contribute to the amelioration of damage to the environment arising as a result of or in relation to armed conflict.

The workshop gathered together experts from Europe, the United States and Australia, including leading academics as well as representatives from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Swedish, Norwegian and Danish Red Cross Societies and the Swedish and Norwegian governments.
