ÔThis is a concise and nuanced overview of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). The structure is unusual. While the book reflects the state of the law with accuracy and sobriety, it nevertheless shows the idealist and philosophical ambitions of the authors. Legal issues are often discussed within a wider moral and ethical context. The authors add many basics on human rights and the enforcement of international law, which are not directly relevant for IHL, but ensure the reader understands the wider picture.Õ Ð Marco Sass~li, University of Geneva, Switzerland This book provides a clear and concise explanation of the central principles of international humanitarian law (or the law of armed conflict) while situating them in a broader philosophical, ethical and legal context. The authors consider a range of wider issues relevant to international humanitarian law, including its ethical foundations, relationship to other bodies of international law and contemporary modes of enforcement. This helps to develop a richer context for understanding the law of war and a sound basis for examining the changing nature of contemporary armed conflict. The book also discusses important recent decisions by international courts and tribunals, tracks the historical development of humanitarian principles in warfare and considers the legal position of states, individuals and non-state groups. Principles of International Humanitarian Law is an important resource for students of international humanitarian law and International law academics, as well as international humanitarian law practitioners.

Auszug: ...zum dritten Male zwei der grossten Machte der neueren Zeit sich im blutigen Kampfe massen, wurden noch immer die zahlreichen und traurigen Menfchenreste jenes Tages gesammelt, die selbst auf dem Kirchhofe die Kreuze und Grabsteine mit Blut bedeckten. Gegen 9 Uhr kam ich nach Cavriana; es war ein in seiner Art einziges und grossartiges Schauspiel, den Kriegstrain zu sehen, welcher das Hauptquartier des Kaisers der Franzosen umgab. Ich suchte den Herzog von Magenta, den ich die Ehre hatte, personlich zu kennen. Da ich nicht genau wusste, wo in diesem Augenblicke sein Armeecorps lagerte, so liess ich mein Cabriolet auf einem kleinen Platze halten, gegenuber dem Hause, in welchem seit Freitag Abend Kaiser Napoleon wohnte; und so befand ich mich nun plotzlich inmitten einer Gruppe von Generalen, welche auf einfachen Strohstuhleu oder selbst auf holzernen Schemeln sassen, und in der Frische des Abends, gegenuber dem improuisirten Palaste ihres Herrschers, ihre Cigarren rauchteu. Wahrend ich mich erkundigte, in welcher Richtung ich den Marschall Mac-Mahon treffen konne, befragten diese Generale ihrerseits den mich begleitenden Corporal, welchen sie neben meinem Kutscher sitzend fur meine Ordonnanz hielten): sie wollten namlich wissen, wer ich sei und zugleich erfahren, welchen Auftrag ich wohl haben konne; denn es siel ihnen nicht ein, dass ein gewohnlicher Tourist sich allein in die Lager wage und, bis nach Cavriaua gekommen, zu so spater Stunde noch weiter wolle. Der Corporal, der selbst keinen Aufschluss geben konnte, blieb naturlich sehr schweigsam hieruber, obgleich e

The main aim of this book is to inquire into the system of norms regulating the 'internationalization' of internal conflicts. The traditional distinction between international & internal conflict, which entails different legal consequences, is in practice very difficult to detect due to the presence, in many instances, of elements typical of both situations. Through a careful & extraordinarily useful examination of all relevant cases of 'internationalized' internal conflict since 1956, the validity of the traditional framework of rules concerning foreign intervention in internal conflict is reassessed. At the same time, the applicability to these situations of the rules typical of international conflicts are analyzed with a view to providing the existence of a continuum between the two situations, not only as a matter of fact but also with respect to their legal regulation.

Hardcover. Bibliography. Index. This book is a detailed treatise on the forms of criminal responsibility arising from violations of international humanitarian law. It examines the evolution of personal responsibility and its contemporary application to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, and traces the origin and development of such concepts as direct participation, ordering, complicity and inciting. It provides a detailed overview of the law of superior responsibility, and ascertains the nature of internal armed conflicts, the liability therein and the application of humanitarian law in such conflicts.By concentrating in a single volume the criminal aspects of humanitarian law from an immense variety of legal material - including extensive analysis of the jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda and the International Criminal Court - this book is essential for postgraduates and academics studying International Humanitarian Law and practitioners of International Law. The International Committee of the Red Cross awarded the 2000 Paul Reuter Prize it.

The essays selected for the first part of this volume offer an insight into the development, as distinguished from the history, of international humanitarian law. The focus of the majority of the works reprinted here is on an analysis of the adequacy of the law as it stood at the time of the respective publication and in the light of existing contemporary armed conflicts and military operations. Thus, the reader is afforded an in-depth look at the early roots of international humanitarian law, the continuing relevance of that body of law despite advances in weapons technology and the efforts to progressively develop it. International humanitarian law's development cannot be considered in isolation from its principles. The essays selected for the second part of the volume deal with the two fundamental principles underlying all of international humanitarian law: humanity and military necessity. The articles on the principles of humanity include reflections on the famous Martens Clause, and the analyses of military necessity take no account of 'Kriegsraison'. Moreover, they offer proof of the customary character of the principle of distinction in land, air and naval warfare.

Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.
