International humanitarian law will be the focus of a free public social justice forum hosted by the University of the Sunshine Coast Law Students’ Association (USCLSA) on Tuesday 2 September at 7pm.
Amnesty International Australia’s Crisis Response Campaign Coordinator Michael Hayworth will speak about how international law should protect civilians in conflicts, with particular reference to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
USCLSA vice-president David Knobel said the forum had been organised for USC Law students and the general community to learn about social justice and international law from an expert in the field.
“Michael Hayworth has been campaigning for the protection of civilians caught in conflicts in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific regions for many years, so he has lots of experience in this area of law,” he said.
“The Israeli-Palestinian conflict receives a great deal of attention in Australia and the forum will provide people with an opportunity to ask questions and participate in a discussion about the issues affecting the protection of civilians and human rights.”
The event will be held in Lecture Theatre 6 in Building K at USC’s Sippy Downs campus.
USC introduced a suite of Law degrees this year, with details at www.usc.edu.au. Students interested in studying Law at USC in 2015 should apply via QTAC (Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre) at www.qtac.edu.au.
