JIB/JAB - Episode 34: O'Meara - Necessity and Proportionality in Self-Defence JIB/JAB Podcast

    • Society & Culture

A discussion with Chris O'Meara, Lecturer at Exeter University Law School, about his new book, "Necessity and Proportionality and the Right of Self-Defence In International Law." Chris explains his novel taxonomy for the principle of necessity, and how the relationship among necessity, proportionality, and imminence should be properly understood, and we delve into some of the potentially controversial claims he makes, on how necessity operates as a limiting principle, where the gravity threshold should be for for armed attack, whether the principles of self-defence are modified in responses to non-state actors, why the assertions and actions of a minority of powerful states should be considered so heavily in thinking about custom, and so much more! A fascinating conversation.
