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?
