ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq (St. James's Studies in World Affairs) (paperback)

Author: 

Ghandour, Christel, University of Leiden

ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq explores how and why the Islamic State organized and used sexual violence against Yezidi women in Iraq. Sexual violence in conflict is one the most devastating types of attack waged against non-combatants. It separates families, displaces communities, and perpetuates on-going social and psychological conflicts long after surviving victims are freed. It is a highly effective weapon that degrades and humiliates people when they are most vulnerable.

Human Rights and the Arab Spring: The Cases of Tunisia and Egypt (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

El-Halabi, Bachar, National University of Ireland, Galway

By 2015, four years after the dawn of the Arab Spring,the prospects of a unifying political reform narrative in the Arab World were noticeably dwindling. The unprecedented opportunity for a regional workshop of reform and state building had stalled, with Islamist movements more anxious about questions of identity and religious ethics, and with the old guards of the “deep state” establishments (mainly military or religious personnel) countering the revolutions, rather than being concerned with constitutionalism.

Many people are still missing and many more have been displaced. The lives of women in particular have been affected, with a heightened prevalence of gender-based violence during the armed conflict and post-conflict transition period.

Britain's Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

On October 1, 1960, Nigeria gained her independence from the British colonial rule. On July 6, 1967, the country was engulfed in a civil war fought between the Federal Military Government of Nigeria, led by Major-General Yakubu Gowon, and the defunct Republic of Biafra, led by Lieutenant-Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. As the former colonial power, and Nigeria’s closet partner in the Commonwealth and, indeed, in the Western world, the outbreak of the war in 1967 presented Britain with a painful dilemma.
