Reading List – Regulating Complex Terrain in Counterinsurgency

See here for a high-powered conference that just took place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, on Exploring the Need for Additional Norms to Govern Contemporary Conflict Situations. H/T (again) to Bobby Chesney

[Slow day, so I’m covering new readings…. come to think of it, I’ve just decided to compile and post a Reading List on Regulating Complex Terrain in Counterinsurgency to the CTLab blogsite – consider it a corollary to Abu Muqawama’s COIN Reading List. Stay tuned.]
