The Blog is open to any topic which revolves around “JUSTICE TO VICTIMS OF WAR” or any other contemporary legal issue(s) related.
The victims of war, in a narrow sense, are those who directly suffered a loss due to the ongoing war such as the people who lost their lives, got injured or had a loss of property.
But war does not discriminate between a soldier and a civilian. Thus, in a much broader sense, the victims of war are all those people whose lives were affected due to this internationally unlawful act.
From a humanitarian perspective, armed conflicts and violence are about people – the risks, vulnerabilities and suffering they are exposed to, and the actions that must be undertaken to prevent, mitigate or put an end to that suffering.
In this spirit, the present edition focuses on the people affected by armed violence, and on how they can be better protected, assisted, and treated with dignity.
The theme aims to offer a reflection on the needs of the victims of war. The theme also seeks to deepen the intellectual roots by exploring the possibilities in a war-scarred region and the challenges that people face due to the ongoing war. It does not confine the term war to an armed fight but also looks into a broad sense and takes into consideration the wars related to drugs, migration, property, terrorism, etc. It also aims at analysing the potential of the treaties signed post-war in the field of law. The work of the author(s) must represent a new idea or contribution to the jurisprudence of the topic. Arguments must be logical and backed by facts.
