            Child soldiers are generally perceived as faultless, passive victims. This ignores that the roles of child soldiers vary, from innocent abductee to wilful perpetrator. This book argues that child soldiers should be judged on their actions and that treating them like a homogenous ...group prevents them from taking responsibility for their acts.

            This book examines thea theoretical, policy and empirical arguments relevant to the debatea concerning thea legalisation of interrogational torture. Torturing Terrorists examines, as part ofa aa consequentialist analysis, the nature and impact of torture anda the implications of ...its legal regulationa on individuals, institutions and wider society. In so doing, the book engages in a critical and wide ranging inter-disciplinary analysis of the arguments and claims that are put forward by thea proponents and opponents of legalised torture anda includes a detailed analysis of the use of interrogational torture by state officials in the United Kingdom. The text will include a detailed analysis of thea effectiveness ofa interrogational torture, including examinationa of evidence on the intelligence produced bya a variety of coercive interrogation techniques includinga waterboarding and the use of stress positions. Crucially, and in a departure from previous work, this text will distinguish between differing types of intelligence that are produced by torture, in particular, what will be termed a ~ticking bomba intelligencea (TM) anda a ~infrastructure intelligencea (TM), and includes the text of a draft torture statute.

            UNHCR and the Struggle for Accountability: Technology, law and results-based management

            Despite the key importance of accountability for the legitimacy of humanitarian action, inadequate academic attention has been given to how the concept of accountability is evolving within the specific branches of the humanitarian enterprise. Up to now, there exists no comprehens...ive account of what we label the 'technologies of accountability', the effects of their interaction, or the question of how the current turn to decision-making software and biometrics as both the means and ends of accountability may contribute to reshaping humanitarian governance. UNHCR and the Struggle for Accountability explores the UNHCR's quest for accountability by viewing the UNHCR's accountability obligations through the web of institutional relationships within which the agency is placed (beneficiaries, host governments, implementing partners, donors, the Executive Committee and UNGA). The book takes a multidisciplinary approach in order to illuminate the various layers and relationships that constitute accountability and also to reflect on what constitutes good enough accountability. This book contributes to the discussion regarding how we construct knowledge about concepts in humanitarian studies and is a valuable resource for academics, researchers and professionals in the areas of anthropology, history, international relations, international law, science, technology studies and socio-legal studies.
