The United Nations Charter envisages that ‘force’ is permissible in certain limited circumstances (such as the right of individual and collective self-defence), but the prohibition of intervention suggests that armed action is also permissible in other sets of circumstances (such as where it occurs with the invitation or consent of the target State). By navigating the applicability of these two rules and their respective exceptions to the facts before us, this presentation will attempt to analyse the function and permissibility of the recent actions undertaken by the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Iran against Islamic State: are we able to determine with any clarity or conviction whether these actions command the support of international law—and what evidence from Iraq and Syria is required in order to facilitate any such determination?
Dino Kritsiotis is Chair of Public International Law at the University of Nottingham, where he has been teaching since October 1994, and serves as the founding Head of the International Humanitarian Law Unit of the Human Rights Law Centre, which was established in November 2012. Professor Kritsiotis has held the Robert K. Castetter Distinguished Visiting Foreign Law Professorship at the California Western School of Law in San Diego (2012) as well as the L. Bates Lea Visiting Professorship of Law at the University of Michigan (2005-2008). He has lectured and taught at the University of Hong Kong, the University of New South Wales, the University of Melbourne and the University of Cape Town, and, in July 2011, he became a regular member of the faculty of the summer Masters Programme in International Human Rights Law at Oxford University. Professor Kritsiotis sits on the editorial boards of the Journal of Conflict and Security Law (Oxford University Press); the Human Rights Law Review (Oxford University Press); the African Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law (Juta Publishing) and the Journal of the Use of Force and International Law (Hart Publishing). Together with Anne Orford, Michael D. Kirby Professor of International Law and Australian Research Council Future Fellow at Melbourne Law School, and J.H.H. Weiler, President of the European University Institute in Florence, Professor Kritsiotis has convened the Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law since its launch at New York University School of Law in May 2012.
