The online forum Just Security is holding a mini-forum on the Serdar Mohammed v. Secretary of State for Defense (full text) judgement which was handed down last week by Mr. Justice Leggatt of the High Court of England and Wales. The mini forum starts with a post by Derek Jinks entitled ‘Does IHL authorize detention in NIACs?’ and a post by Jonathan Horowitz and Christopher Rogers entitled ‘Does IHL need human rights law? The curious case of NIAC detention’. Further posts in the series are promised with mention that Ryan Goodman and Fionnuala Ní Aoláin may join the conversation. For a summary of the judgment and its significance within the legal debate, see the post by Marko Milanovic over at EJIL: Talk!.
