PhD Candidate, Stacey Henderson, has been awarded the Hugh Martin Weir Prize for a paper entitled ‘Children who are DPH: Does the law adequately take the status of child into account…and should it?’. This paper explores the contemporary challenge of children who are direct participants in hostilities (DPH). It considers the legal questions of when the child is, and ceases to be, DPH, and whether there are, or should be, any special rules surrounding targeting children who are DPH. Stacey presented this paper at the Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law’s International Peace and Security Interest Group Workshop at Sydney Law School on 22 April 2016.
The Adelaide Law School would like to congratulate Stacey on her award.
