JIB/JAB - Episode 33: Provost on Rebel Courts JIB/JAB Podcast

    • Society & Culture

A conversation with René Provost, professor of law at McGill University, Faculty of Law, in Montreal, about his recent book "Rebel Courts: The Administration of Justice by Armed Insurgents." We discuss the methodology he employed in researching this deep and rich ethnography of rebel courts in conflicts ranging from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, to Sri Lanka, Colombia, and the DRC. We discuss how he assesses the legality of insurgents' administration of justice, how the very idea of rebel courts challenges many conceptions of law and justice, and the ways in which rebel administration of justice actually conforms to many aspects of the rule of law. It is a fascinating discussion that ranges from legal anthropology and legal theory to certain technical aspects of IHL and human rights law.
