"This path-breaking book demonstrates through superb quantitative and qualitative empirical studies that non-state violent actors, such as rebel groups, are likely to comply with international law - if and when they seek political legitimacy. Hyeran Jo's work gives us hope that atrocities and gross human rights violations during civil wars can be overcome. A must-read for scholars and practitioners alike!"
Thomas Risse, Freie Universität Berlin
"If you read one book on whether, how and why rebel groups engage with international rules of war and conflict, this must be it. Hyeran Jo's utterly compelling account of rebel motives and decisions will leave you thinking about law, politics, and civil rebellion in a new way."
Beth A. Simmons, Clarence Dillon Professor of International Affairs, Harvard University, Massachusetts
"[This book] expertly traces how rebel groups seek legitimacy from domestic and international audiences concerned with human rights and draws on original research on rebel groups' behavior."
Award Committee, 2015 Chadwick Alger Prize, International Studies Association
Hyeran Jo analyzes civil wars over the past twenty years and finds that, contrary to conventional wisdom, some rebel groups actually comply with international law. This book examines this phenomenon of compliant rebels and why they exist and emerge all around the world.
