About this book

The Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law is the world's only annual publication devoted to the study of the laws governing armed conflict. It provides a truly international forum for high-quality, peer-reviewed academic articles focusing on this crucial branch of international law. Distinguished by contemporary relevance, the Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law bridges the gap between theory and practice and serves as a useful reference tool for scholars, practitioners, military personnel, civil servants, diplomats, human rights workers and students.

 The present volume features articles on such timely topics as targeted killings, international humanitarian law in domestic courts, counter insurgency and the law, the use of drones by intelligence agencies, bombing campaigns, occupation and the interplay between international humanitarian and human rights law, as well as a special section on the subject of the Gaza blockade, a survey of current developments in international humanitarian law, reports on State practice in the field, and a bibliography of recent publications.
