  • Depicts international humanitarian law’s contemporary evolution through international and domestic judicial bodies
  • Treats also quasi-judicial bodies as bodies whose reports can influence international humanitarian law
  • Covers the multi-faced facets of international humanitarian law, giving a broader view to academics as well as practitioners

International humanitarian law has been perceived till now as encompassing only judicial cases concerning refugee protection or war crimes prosecutions, particularly in domestic fora. Yet, the last decade has witnessed a revolution in the way judicial bodies—international and domestic alike—are ready to tackle complex security aspects pertaining to the laws of war. The present volume follows the international and domestic courts’ jurisprudential evolution as they deal with issues like the classification of armed conflicts, direct participation in hostilities and the nexus between international humanitarian law and human rights law. Projecting the field’s jurisprudential development, the volume examines the role of international humanitarian law also in the realms of quasi-judicial bodies.
