Abstract The International Law Studies ('Blue Book') series was initiated by the Naval War College in 1901 to publish essays, treaties and articles that contribute to the broader understanding of international law. This, the eighty- sixth volume of the 'Blue Book' series, is a compilation of scholarly papers and remarks derived from the proceedings of a conference hosted here at the Naval War College on June 23-25, 2009 and entitled 'The War in Iraq: A Legal Analysis.' The June 2009 'War in Iraq' conference served as a second and 'companion' proceeding to the Experts Workshop 'The War in Afghanistan: A Legal Analysis,' hosted by the Naval War College in June 2008 and the resulting scholarly works of which appear in Volume 85 of the 'Blue Book' series. The purpose of the conference, similar to the previous year's Afghanistan workshop, was to provide a comprehensive legal examination of the armed conflict in Iraq during the second Gulf War that began in 2003. The issues were examined by five panels of experts, addressing topics that spanned the entire spectrum of the conflict and the re-establishment of Iraqi sovereignty. Panelists discussed legal issues associated with the initial decision to use armed force, the manner in which force was employed, the legal framework and evolution of military activities from invasion to occupation, detention and counterinsurgency operations, as well as policy and legal issues associated with the establishment of the rule of law and return of governance to the people of Iraq. Renowned international academics and legal advisers, both military and civilian, representing military, diplomatic, non-governmental and academic institutions from the international community contributed to the conference and this 'Blue Book.' Readers and researchers will find within this volume a detailed study of the Iraq conflict, as well as its profound implications on the ongoing development of international law, the law of armed conflict and military operations.
