The Syrian Crisis and International Law

The complicated political and military landscape in Syria continues to zigzag even as new diplomatic efforts to eliminate the use of chemical weapons take shape. In times of crisis, international legal scholars unleash a lively stream of commentary on the web. How to keep up with it? Oxford University Press recently began to map their statements focusing on the question of use of force in Syria. See the debate map here.

The library recently received a new book which introduces and provides a legal analysis of the Syrian conflict. It includes the texts of several international legal documents related to the crisis. See: Law and War in Syria: A Legal Account of the Current Crisis in Syria.
