Degrade and Destroy: Winning the War against Daesh?

Posted on 05/07/2016

On 23 June Dr David Whetham co-hosted a workshop with Dr Cian O’Driscoll (University of Glasgow), providing an opportunity for specialists to explore the topic ‘Degrade and Destroy: Winning the War against Daesh?’.

The purpose of the workshop was to examine the progress made thus far by the UK and its allies in the war against Daesh; to identify problems that have arisen; and to plan for future strategic, legal, political and ethical challenges that the war is likely to precipitate. This created a select forum of policy-makers, military practitioners and leading academic researchers, facilitating a conversation of use for all parties.

Key speakers included Ewen Macleod (UNHCR), Nigel Holmes and Martha Turnbull (Foreign and Commonwealth Office), Lt Col Johnny Resman (Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre), Prof John Kelsay (Florida State University), Dr Tarak Barkawi (LSE), Prof Nigal Biggar (University of Oxford), Prof John Williams (Durham University), Prof Beatrice Heuser (University of Reading), Dr Kurt Mills and Prof Philips O’Brien (University of Glasgow), Asima Rabbani (Pakistan Foreign Service and Australian Defence Force Academy), and Ofer Fridman (University of Reading).

The workshop was convened in conjunction with the ‘Moral Victories’ project that the Glasgow Global Security Network is currently running in partnership with King’s and the US Naval War Academy, funded by the ESRC.
