The 2023 NATO ACO International Legal Conference took place
at the "University Military Institute" in Lisbon, Portugal from the
17th to the 20th of April, co-organized by the legal offices of the Ministry of
Defence of Portugal and the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE).
The Conference was aimed at bringing together Senior Legal
Advisors from several NATO bodies and several Ministries of NATO and Non-NATO
countries in order to discuss different topics such as the Interpretation of
Treaties, Legal Vigilance and Space Law.
During the Conference, the NATO SFA COE Legal Advisor shared
the main topics of the new editorial project entitled "Stabilization and
Reconstruction in a Post-Conflict Environment" designed by the NATO SFA
COE, SHAPE and the International Institute of Humanitarian Law in Sanremo (IIHL).
The new specialized publication responds to the emerging need
to mitigate the instability factors in post-conflict areas, in order to collect
and study the best possible practices potentially applicable to various
crisis-affected regions and guarantee their resilience post-intervention.
