Col. Kenneth Watkin is currently a Deputy Judge Advocate General/Operations to the Canadian Forces. In 1998, he participated as a student and teacher in a collaborative course on humanitarian law run by HRP and the International Committee of the Red Cross. While at Harvard, Watkin will explore human rights and humanitarian law, studying the legal framework governing combatants and “unprivileged” belligerents in modern armed conflict. His research will explore the ability of the law to provide a realistic governance framework for controlling participation and providing meaningful protection for participants in armed conflict.
