Dr Eve Massingham shared her insights on the approach that States should take to nuclear weapons in consideration of their obligation to 'ensure respect for international humanitarian law' under Common Article 1 of the Geneva Conventions of 1949.
Dr Massingham is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Queensland. She has been an ARC volunteer, staff and/or member since 1999 and worked, in particular, on the ARC nuclear weapons campaign from 2010-2014. She has recently returned to Australia from working for the ICRC in East and Southern Africa from 2016-2019. Eve is the coeditor of a forthcoming book (Routledge, 2020) on the obligation to ensure respect for international humanitarian law and in the book, and previously in her PhD, she has looked at the legality of nuclear weapons and the approach that States have taken to them through an ‘ensure respect’ lens.
