This debate (recorded on 5 May 2015) discussed questions such as:

Is there an increasing number of legal claims being brought against the MoD under human rights law?

Does the application of civilian norms to military conduct lead to a surge in claims?

Should rules of engagement be subject to the same laws as those applied to civilians in non-conflict situations?

Is there an appropriate balance between legal protections of those whose human rights have been violated and protecting the public?
