  2. 2. The Life and Times of Targeted Killing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Almqvist & Wiksell International / Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis

    Author : Markus Gunneflo; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Targeted killing; assassination; international law; constitutional law; human rights; law of armed conflict; law of occupation; history; politics; Roberto Esposito; Walter Benjamin; Carl Schmitt; sovereignty; community; immunity;

    Abstract : Against the background of the ongoing shift in the perception of the legality and legitimacy of extraterritorial lethal force in counterterrorism, this thesis analyses the emergence of so-called “targeted killing” in the history of Israel and the US, as well as in international law. It finds that the relationship between targeted killing and law, particularly international law, is not a straightforward case of more or less determinate and legally binding norms being applied to state measures adopted in situations of insecurity (in this case, those of the second Intifada and 9/11) but rather one of a much longer and mutually productive relationship.
