From The Hague to Geneva: The protection of civilians and refugees in the perspective of legal history, 1899-1951

Segesser, Daniel Marc (6 November 2015). From The Hague to Geneva: The protection of civilians and refugees in the perspective of legal history, 1899-1951 (Unpublished). In: Profughi/Rifugati: Spostamenti di popolazioni nell'Europa della Grande Guerra, 1914-1918 – Refugees. Deplacements of civil populations in Europe during World War I 1914-1918. Rovereto. 04.-06.11.2015.

The presentation proposed here shall focus on international (and as far as possible some cases of national) legal protection of civilians and refugees between the first Hague Convention of 1899 and the Geneva Convention for the Protection of Refugees in 1951. An analysis of international legal texts as well as, if possible, some exemplary national constitutions will form the core of the presentation, which will try to find out, to what extent not only the civilian population remaining close to front-line fighting, but also under occupation was supposed to be protected by legal norms, but also to what extent the issue of forcing civilian to leave their homes became part of the international legal discourse as well as of international legal norms.
