Will air raids in Syria help enforce terror-free global order?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The British Parliament will tomorrow decide whether to join France, Russia and the US in air operations against ISIS in Syria. The intention is to show that violence against innocent civilians wins no concessions. New destructive air raids intend to enforce global humanitarian norms against terror and violence on civilians. Not many believe though, that after a US, Russian, French and perhaps UK beating, ISIS will give up violence and the Middle East and Europe will be peaceful again. In fact, most experts unanimously agree that ISIS made a serious mistake in escalating its war to Europe, while there seems to be new evidence suggesting that France and the UK could also be making a mistake in intensifying violence in Syria.
