A panel discussion, “Decoding ISIS,” organized by AUC Forum. The panel will provide a comprehensive overview of the legal system- including laws, police, courts and prison- that ISIS uses to justify its violence, governance and territorial expansion. It will also explain how ISIS uses this politico-legal system to advance its state-building objectives and highlights some of its emerging vulnerabilities.
Mara Revkin, J.D. candidate at Yale Law School and Ahmed Samra, senior researcher/editor, Regional Center for Strategic Studies, Egypt. The discussion will be moderated by Bahgat Korany, professor of political science and director of AUC Forum.
