This handbook offers the most up-to-date authoritative commentary and analysis of international humanitarian law applicable in international and non-international armed conflicts. Renowned international lawyers offer insight in the relevant principles and provisions. They also address important rules for post-conflict situations and peace operations, issues of human rights in military operations and problems of application of the law in campaigns against terroristattacks. Controversial opinions and judgments of national and international courts are addressed in a practice-oriented manner. Based on best-practice rules of global importance, this standard book elaborates extensively on efforts to ensure compliance and enforcement.
