Interview with Dapo Akande


Professor Joseph Weiler, Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of International Law, and Professor Dapo Akande of the University of Oxford discuss the relationship between international humanitarian law and international human rights law. The conversation explores the reasons why practitioners in these two fields might prefer to keep them separate, whether there are in fact any overlaps, and whether and how the two branches of international law might be reconciled. The interview was recorded at the European University Institute in March 2015.
