The ongoing launching of missiles combined with the test of large nuclear bombs by North Korea causes great concern around the world. Although North Korea is no longer subject to the Non-Proliferation Treaty it remains subject to international law obligations including various UN Security Council Resolutions.

However, to date, the UN-Security Council has not authorised the use of force against North Korea.

Under these circumstances, is there any justification under international law for starting a war against North Korea?

Dr Matthias Hartwig is senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg Germany. He is currently involved in constitution drafting processes in Libya and Yemen, has published more than 100 articles in the field of comparative constitutional law and international law, and taught international law in more than eight countries.


This free seminar is presented by the Institute for the Study of Social Change and the School of Social Sciences. All welcome.
