Asser Press/Springer Verlag published the book Foreign Fighters under International Law and Beyond, which is edited by Prof. Andrea de Guttry, Dr. Francesca Capone and ICCT Research Fellow Dr. Christophe Paulussen. This book offers various perspectives, with an international legal focus, on an important and underexplored topic: the issue of foreign fighters. It provides an overview of challenges, pays considerable attention to the status of foreign fighters, and addresses numerous approaches, both at the supranational and national level, on how to tackle this problem.

Several ICCT staff members were involved in the production of this book, with chapters written not only by Christophe Paulussen, but also by Mark Singleton, Eva Entenmann, Edwin Bakker and Daveed Gartenstein-Ross. More information can be found on the website of T.M.C. Asser Press,
