New BICC research project “On the road to liquid warfare”

In October, BICC has started with the new project “On the road to liquid warfare?“ The project asks how the proliferation of modern military technology for remote warfare – e.g. ballistic missiles, precision-guided munition, or drones – transforms war and warfare practices of autocratic states and non-state armed actors. The focus is on the warfare practices of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar since the early 1990s, as well as the warfare of the Houthi in Yemen and the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq. The project will run for three years and is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG).
