This campaign is aimed at convincing U.S.

Neither Thugs nor Terrorists: Black-Palestinian Solidarity Movements in the United States

Author: 

Serhan, Randa, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology, American University

Soon after a series of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, African-American protestors there and Palestinian protestors in the West Bank began to include the slogan “From Ferguson to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime” in their public statements. In Neither Thugs nor Terrorists, Randa Serhan uses cutting edge first-hand research to explore how these two distant communities found common cause in protesting the militarization of the forces that policed and criminalized them.

Human Rights and the Arab Spring: The Cases of Tunisia and Egypt (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)(Paperback edition)

Author: 

El-Halabi, Bachar, Asfari Institute, American University of Beirut

By 2015, four years after the dawn of the Arab Spring, the prospects of a unifying political reform narrative in the Arab World were noticeably dwindling. The unprecedented opportunity for a regional workshop of reform and state building had stalled, with Islamist movements more anxious about questions of identity and religious ethics, and with the old guards of the “deep state” establishments (mainly military or religious personnel) countering the revolutions, rather than being concerned with constitutionalism.

ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq (St. James's Studies in World Affairs) (paperback)

Author: 

Ghandour, Christel, University of Leiden

ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq explores how and why the Islamic State organized and used sexual violence against Yezidi women in Iraq. Sexual violence in conflict is one the most devastating types of attack waged against non-combatants. It separates families, displaces communities, and perpetuates on-going social and psychological conflicts long after surviving victims are freed. It is a highly effective weapon that degrades and humiliates people when they are most vulnerable.
