RECRUITMENT OF CHILD SOLDIERS: THE CASE OF SYRIA(17.11.2014)

Recruitment of Child Soldiers: The Case of Syria

The characteristic of warfare has been changing not only quantitatively but also qualitatively. In other words, war technology has increased dramatically particularly after the Cold War era. These massive developments in the weapon technology, computer systems, and satellite systems have undermined the need of large and bulky armies. Moreover, these developments also enable non-state actors (terrorist organizations, revolutionary groups etc.) to utilize the so-called warfare technology.

LIBYA AND MERCENARIES(21.04.2014)

THE CONTENT OF THE RULE: CONCRETENESS AND NORMATIVITY

By Burak GüneşOne of the most significant current discussions in legal philosophy are Prof.Koskenniemi’s provocative works. As being both an academician and diplomat, Prof.Koskenniemi tries to establish a new methodology  in order to examine international law. But, it seems that Koskenniemi’s understanding of the new methodology of international law is questionable. As Rajagopal points, Koskenniemi’s works are ‘too European’.  In this paper, the following structure will be used to understand the basic arguments of Koskenniemi. Firstly, the basic phenomenon and notions of this article will be discussed. At the same time, the book called ‘From Apology to ...
