“On supplying arms to Ukraine”: Kai Ambos’ opinion column in El Espectador
Prof. Dr. Kai Ambos recently published an opinion column in El Espectador on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
According to the ancient and venerable law of neutrality, the territory of neutral powers is “inviolable”. But when does a state lose its neutrality? – Kai Ambos
Kai Ambos is professor of criminal law and criminal procedure, comparative law, international criminal law, and public international law at the University of Göttingen (GAU); he is also a judge at the Kosovo Special Court, The Hague, and an advisor (amicus curiae) to the Special Jurisdiction for Peace in Colombia. Susann Aboueldahab has been a research fellow at the Institute for Criminal Law and Criminal Justice at the University of Göttingen since 2017. Aboueldahab researches issues of international criminal law and public international law, and is currently working on a doctoral thesis focusing on sexualised and gender-based violence.
In his column, Prof. Ambos reflets on “what kinds of measures in favor of one party to the conflict (Ukraine) turn a state into a party to the conflict and —as a further consequence— authorize the other party to the conflict (Russia) to take countermeasures”.
