Prominent Islamic Scholars, Islamic Jihad, Terrorism and Jus in Bello

CPIA Roundtable with Prof. Kadir Akyuz

It has long been debated whether religions lead people to commit indiscriminate violence and terrorist acts.

Several Islamic scholars are believed to provide the ideological framework to many Islamist terrorist organizations.

This presentation will discuss the thoughts and teachings of the Islamic scholars that are associated with the use of violence in the context of “jus ad bellum” and “jus in bello.”
