The Emergence of Lawfare (OUP Infographic)

The security of individual nations and the wider world is protected through many means, force or diplomacy, culture or environment. Law is increasingly deployed as an alternative to military force, although its use dates back as far as international law itself. Even private sector and other non-governmental attorneys play a leading role in lawfare. So how did it develop? How are different countries taking advantage of it? And which groups are using it to achieve their goals? We explore these questions and more in an infographic based on Orde F. Kittrie’s Lawfare: Law as a Weapon of War.
