Fighting at the Legal Boundaries

Kenneth Watkin

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the type of education, training, and other preparation that could be considered in order to prepare legal advisors to provide operational law advice in the complex security environment of the twenty-first century. The analysis discusses the need to incorporate the lessons learned from the post-9/11 period, to view contemporary conflict as occurring on a much broader continuum of violence, to encourage the academic community to ground their theoretical work in the world of practice, and to seek to adapt to rather than resist the changing legal and security landscape.
