Expert Seminar: Responsibility in Multinational Military Operations
The SHARES Project held a one-day Expert Seminar in Amsterdam on 16 December 2010 devoted to the topic of Responsibility in Multinational Military Operations, with a specific focus on practice. The seminar was organized in cooperation with the International Law Centre of the Swedish National Defence College as a follow up to a previous seminar organized in Stockholm in October 2009.
The seminar was part of the Expert Seminar Series launched by SHARES to uncover the practice in diverse areas. The seminar on allocation of responsibility in the context of multinational military operations was the first of these seminars, later followed by seminars on protection of refugees and international environmental law.
This Expert Seminar examined the practice of four international organizations engaging in multinational military operations: the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the European Union, and the African Union.
