    Justice at the Ends of the Earth: What Rebels and Terrorists Think of Law

    Distinguished Speakers Program: Professor Ben Saul


    20 October 2014

    This lecture explores the attitudes and practices of groups labelled as "terrorist" towards international and national law. Why do some groups violate humanitarian norms more than others? What factors pull terrorist groups closer towards respecting human rights, and what factors push them away? Are there ways that the international community can constructively engage with some groups to socialise them into behaving better? What are the limits of such engagement? Are some groups, such as the "Islamic State", so beyond the pale that all we can do is kill them?


    About the speaker:
    Dr Ben Saul is Professor of International Law and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the University of Sydney. Ben is internationally recognised as a leading expert on global counter-terrorism law, human rights, the law of war, and international crimes.
