Recent history and Elizabethan drama overlap in a unique fusion of theatre and legal trial. Real-life barristers, a judge, other legal professionals and a “jury” formed by the audience will take part in a “trial” of Hamlet for the murder of Polonius. The unscripted and interactive play by Roger Bernat and Yan Duyvendak awakens the audience’s sense of ethics, drawing them to realise how difficult it is to judge someone and giving them insight into how justice is administered.
Location: JC Cube, Tai Kwun Theatre, Central, Hong Kong

How does the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) work towards better respect for international humanitarian law (IHL)? The ICRC Regional Delegation in Beijing will share with us their global experience in humanizing armed conflicts and their local experience of humanitarian diplomacy in China. What help does the ICRC offer to regional states to incorporate, implement and enforce IHL? What has been the ICRC’s experience in lobbying regional states such as China to join IHL related treaties such as the Arms Trade Treaty? How does the ICRC interact with other international/ transnational actors in relation to conflict-related migration in the region and outbound investments into conflict zones regulated by IHL? More generally, what is the ICRC’s hope on influential states, such as China, which is also a permanent member of the Security Council, to enhance respect for IHL? This lunchtime seminar will explore these and many more uncharted crossroads between IHL and China.

Throughout history, they have always been refugees. They used to come from places closer to home. During second World War, the family of Swiss director Markus Imhoof, took in Giovanna, an undernourished eight-year–old Italian girl as part of a short-term program to host children. After the end of her stay, she had to go back to Italy. The Imhoof family privately arranged for Giovanna to come back to visit for a second time. In the end, the Swiss government insisted sending Giovanna back to Italy. She died of illness at the age of thirteen, soon after being forced to return. Imhoof takes this early experience of personal loss as a point of entry to the ongoing refugee crisis, the biggest mass displacement of people since World War II.
