Ryan Goodman on Detention in Armed Conflict

NYU Pro­fes­sor Ryan Good­man is among the many esteemed con­trib­u­tors to the lat­est entry in the U.S. Naval War College’s Inter­na­tion­al Law Stud­ies (Blue Book) Series.  This vol­ume of the Series is titled The War in Afghanistan: A Legal Analy­sis.  In his entry, Ratio­nales for Deten­tion: Secu­ri­ty Threats and Intel­li­gence Val­ue, Good­man argues that Inter­na­tion­al Human­i­tar­i­an Law pro­hibits unlaw­ful deten­tion in non-inter­na­tion­al armed con­flicts, and warns against using intel­li­gence-gath­er­ing as an inde­pen­dent rea­son for detain­ing indi­vid­u­als.  The entire Blue Book series is avail­able for free down­load at the link above.

Prof. Good­man, along with Prof. Derek Jinks, recent­ly intro­duced the JILP Forum on Direct Par­tic­i­pa­tion in Hos­til­i­ties (Issue 42:3).  The lat­est entry in the Blue Book series also includes con­tri­bu­tions from Forum par­tic­i­pants W. Hays Parks, Michael N. Schmitt, and Ken­neth Watkin.  Prof. Schmitt edit­ed the vol­ume.
