Happy Holidays, everybody!

How is it that I become too exhausted to enjoy the preparations every single year by this time? 

Tons of work, studies, Christmas shopping, multiple Christmas fair + mulled wine sessions with friends, hosting family, cooking my annual Christmas cookies for colleagues, this is just how my last couple of days looked like, and again, lots of work to come for the next three days as well… Oh and did I mention the anxiety over some unarrived (I know, I just made this word up) Christmas presents?

I am so much in need of some sleep time right now!


So, this is for those of you, who are lucky enough to have some spare time to check out a few great posts… Of course, the rest of you can always check back later!

Self-defense Operations Against Armed Groups and the Jus in Bello

And yet another legal analysis about the use of force against IS.
