Abstract

The expansion of the organization known as ‘Islamic State’ (IS), operating mainly in Syria and Iraq, but also more recently in Libya, raises several legal and political issues. This article questions the possibility of engagement on humanitarian issues with a non-state armed group (NSAG), such as IS.

Keywords: non state armed groups, international humanitarian law, human rights law, counter-terrorism
