On Monday 19 February 2018, Stephen C. Neff (Edinburgh) will give a lecture on the Standard of Civilization in International Law and direct a doctoral seminar with PhD-candidates at Ghent University.

Stephen Neff is senior lecturer of international law at the University of Edinburgh. His primary research interest is the history of public international law, including the history of the law of neutrality. Another major interest of his is international human rights law, from both the academic and the practical standpoints. Neff’s publications (Justice in Blue and Gray, Justice Among Nations, The Rights and Duties of Neutrals, War and the Law of Nations) have proven to be landmarks in the field of the history of international law. He is by far the English-speaking authority.

Professor Neff's intervention takes place in the framework of the International Order and Justice Lecture Series, organized by the Gustave Rolin-Jaequemyns Institute of International Law (GRILI), in partnership with the Universities of Brussels, Antwerp and Leuven.

The lecture will take place on Monday 19 February 2018 from 13h00-14h30 at Room 1.2 (Paddenhoek), whereas the doctoral seminar is scheduled on the same day from 10h00-11h30 in the Facultaire Raadzaal (Voldersstraat 3). For further questions, please contact Ms. Kristien Ballegeer.
