War is devastating and crippling to everyone that is unfortunate enough to experience it.

The University of Wollongong alongside the Australian Red Cross will be hosting a series of lectures as part of the International Humanitarian Law Lecture Series.

For those who are interested, Part 2 of the lectures will be a detailed introduction in the laws governing the conduct of warfare.

Professor Greg Rose and Jane Munro will be delivering the lecture.

Greg Rose is an experienced international lawyer with Faculty of Law at the University of Wollongong.

Jane Munro, NSW International Humanitarian Law Officer at the Australian Red Cross will also be talking about the activities and mode of operation of the Red Cross in times of armed conflict.

The Red Cross is responsible for drafting new international humanitarian law treaties and tries to ensure that the humanitarian standards set out in the rules of war are respected.

The IHL lecture will be held at the University of Wollongong on the 16th May at 12:30pm in building 67, room 104.
