September 16: Cleveland - How our Fight against ISIS is Changing International Law

Michael P. Scharf
Over the past year, the U.S. and UK have undertaken hundreds of air strikes on ISIS targets in Syria without UN Security Council approval. The UK claims to be acting under a right of humanitarian intervention. The U.S. Claims self-defense.
In this Case Downtown presentation, Dean Michael Scharf explains how the two countries' military action and legal justifications are having a radical effect on international law. Scharf is host of "Talking Foreign Policy," a radio program that airs on WCPN 90.3 Ideastream, and author of 17 books, including three that have won national book of the year honors.
