A Talk by WWAC Board Member Clare Morgana Gillis, PhD


Dr.Gillis, examined Isis propaganda and its afterlife in news and in the popular imagination, and considered the effect of those images on human rights issues surrounding thousands of captured Isis foreign fighters held in Kurdish jails in eastern Syria. As the USA abandoned its Kurdish allies and a Turkish military operation inside Syria raised the possibility of mass prison breaks and a resurgence of Isis, Clare highlighted the continued unwillingness of the international community to address the situation of those fighters, ensuring that the problem will continue.
