ISIL's Rule of Law: Creating a Caliphate State and Laws of Armed Conflict


Is ISIL truly “Islamic”? Or is it better compared to modern nihilists and exotic apocalyptic death cults? Join us for a live-stream discussion on the legal frameworks guiding the creation of ISIL’s caliphate and judicial system, as well as their rules related to armed conflict. ASIL Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict Chair Christie Edwards will moderate a discussion with Professor Andrew March of Yale University and co-author of Caliphate of Law. This live-stream event will be broadcast on and the link will become available shortly before the event. Please send in questions during the event to @humanityinwar using #humanityinwar.
