After the adoption of the UN Charter, war is considered an antithesis to international legality. Still many areas of international law are affected by the reality of war or armed conflict. The prohibition on use of force, the application of international humanitarian law or the respect and protection of human rights law, both in peace and war times, are characteristic examples of this reality.

Within this context the roundtable will shed light on (re)emerging themes from a theoretical, historical and normative perspective, facilitating different ways of scholarly seeing.
