Event description

Description

Join a group of 20–25 CIPL members at a monthly brown bag (BYO) lunch to hear short presentations by specialists on recent developments in international law, followed by general discussion.

At present there are a number of confidence building measures underway, led by different organisations, that seek to address regional tensions in the maritime domain in South East Asia. During this presentation David will outline three of the projects he has been involved with during the past few years and highlight the key characteristics of each, assess their success/failure and speculate on prospects for the future.

Associate Professor David Letts is Director of the Military Law Program, and Director of the Centre for Military and Security Law, at the ANU College of Law. He arrived at ANU in late 2012 after a career of more than three decades in the Royal Australian Navy. David’s research interests centre upon the application of legal regimes to military operations, and he has written on topics including military justice, law of the sea, the law of naval warfare, international humanitarian law and the legal issues which arise on peacekeeping operations.
