The Syrian War Between Justice and Political Reality

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Moodrick-Even Khen Hilly, Boms Nir T., Ashraph Sareta

Couverture de l’ouvrage The Syrian War
Starting as a civil uprising calling for liberal reforms in March 2011, the unrest in Syria rapidly deteriorated into a proxy-led armed conflict involving multiple state-sponsored and non-state actors, including foreign militias and local armed groups. The current state of affairs in Syria, and the uncertainty regarding its future, raise numerous questions for scholars and practitioners of both international law and politics about justice within the context of a changing political reality in Syria. This book contributes uniquely to the scholarship on the Syrian war, raising voices from the Middle East and beyond not often heard within this research context. The volume is divided into three sections: section I sets the factual and legal framework for the Syrian conflict; section II focuses on the implications of the conflict for the Syrian neighbourhood; and section III analyses possible post-conflict scenarios. Together, they address the key themes and questions of the conflicts.
