Hundreds of applications land at the European Court of Human Rights during and in
the aftermath of military confrontations between the member states and as a result
of military operations of the member states overseas. This webinar will consider if
the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe can do anything to
prevent human rights violations before, during and after military interventions.
