The book looks at practically applying the law of armed conflicts to the ongoing situation in Turkey and Northern Iraq. The application of the law in this region will also mean addressing larger questions in international law, global politics and conflict resolution including belligerency in international law, whether the 'law on terror' has resulted in changes to the law of armed conflict and terrorism and conflict resolution. The book goes on to consider conflict resolution in the region, offering a comparative analysis of the situation in Northern Ireland, and suggesting possible political solutions to bring the conflict to an end. This book is the first study into the legislative and humanitarian side of the conflict and will offer a scholarly exploration of a debate that is often politically and emotionally highly charged.

Der zweite Band des Wiener Jahrbuch für Kurdische Studien, der im Auftrag der Österreichischen Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Kurdologie / Europäisches Zentrum für kurdische Studien herausgegeben wird, hat den Schwerpunkt: Die Geschichte von Kurdischen Studien und Kurdologie. Nationale Methodologien und transnationale Verflechtungen. Seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhundert wurden Kurdische Studien in Russland und in verschiedenen mittel- und nordeuropäischen Ländern in Angriff genommen. Die vielversprechenden Entwicklungen fanden jedoch nach dem ersten Weltkrieg oft ein jähes Ende. Generell kann festgestellt werden, dass die Geschichte der Kurdischen Studien seit den Anfängen im 19. Jahrhunderts eng mit Kriegen, Expansionsbestrebungen und wirtschaftspolitischen Intentionen verbunden war und bis heute ist. Als eigenständige Disziplin ist die Kurdologie beziehungsweise sind Kurdische Studien heute an Universitäten in Kurdistan, in mehreren europäischen Ländern, in Russland und den USA verankert. In den Beiträgen von international anerkannten Wissenschaftlerlnnen werden die unterschiedlichen nationalen Methodologien und transnationalen Verbindungen aufgezeigt. Beitrage außerhalb des Schwerpunktes und Hintergrundinformationen zu aktuellen Themen sowie Rezensionen, Tagungsberichte und die Berichte der Gesellschaft sind weitere wichtige Bausteine dieses Jahrbuches.

It is now widely accepted that international human rights law applies in situations of armed conflict alongside international humanitarian law, but the contours and consequences of this development remain unclear. This book revisits, organizes and contextualizes the debate on human rights in armed conflict and explores the legal challenges, operational consequences and policy implications of resorting to human rights in situations of inter- and intra-state violence. It presents the benefits and the drawbacks of using international human rights law alongside humanitarian law and discusses how the idea, law and policy of human rights influence the development of the law of armed conflict. Based on legal theory, policy analysis, state practice and the work of human rights bodies, it suggests a human rights-oriented reading of the law of armed conflict as feasible and necessary in response to the changing character of war.

This book includes a set of studies and reflections that have emerged since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Encompassing a number of human rights, such as the right to environmental protection, the right to humanitarian aid, and the right to democratic governance, this collection focuses on issues and areas that were not originally mentioned or foreseen in the Declaration but that have since developed into salient topics. These developing rights are considered in the light of contemporary national and international law, as well as against the wider picture and the contexts in which human rights may have effect. Moreover, the topics covered take in a wide range of research fields, including law, politics and criminology. Emerging Areas of Human Rights in the 21st Century is aimed primarily at undergraduate and postgraduate students, and scholars interested in international law, human rights and politics.

In mid-2012 the previously almost forgotten Syrian Kurds suddenly emerged as a potential game-changer in the country's civil war when in an attempt to consolidate its increasingly desperate position the Assad government abruptly withdrew its troops from the major Kurdish areas in Syria. The Kurds in Syria had suddenly won autonomy, a situation that has huge implications for neighboring Turkey and the near independent Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq. Indeed, their precipitous rise may prove a tipping-point that alters the boundaries imposed on the Middle East by the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916. These important events and what they portend for the future are scrutinized by the renowned scholar of the Kurds Michael Gunter. He also analyses the sudden rise of Salih Muslim and his Democratic Union Party (PYD) - which was created by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and remains affiliated to it - and the extremely complex and deadly fighting between factions of the Syrian Opposition affiliated with al-Qaeda such as the Jabhat al-Nusra jihadists and the PYD, among others.

Each year, many thousands of child civilians are killed, injured, or otherwise physically and psychologically harmed as a result of armed conflicts. There is a considerable body of international law which aims to minimise the harm inflicted on these children, and yet it is little known, or observed. This book is the first major international legal text to focus exclusively on child civilians. It addresses three main questions: (1) what are the precise rules incorporated in the pertinent body of law, and what are its implementation mechanisms? (2) how effective is it (with reference to recent conflicts involving Iraq) in helping to achieve some protection for child civilians? and (3) can it be rendered more effective? The book concludes by proposing a number of strategies to strengthen the impact of the applicable law. As the first detailed analysis of the surprisingly large body of law relevant to the treatment of child civilians, this book is an important contribution to a topical and highly charged human rights issue.
