Description

A study of international principles and rules regulating the conduct of international and other armed conflicts; the complimentary nature of human rights and humanitarian law in the historical development of restraints in armed conflict; the distinction between rules governing recourse to armed coercion and those governing the conduct of armed hostilities; the protections afforded by the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the 1977 Protocols to combatants and noncombatants, including civilians, POWs, the wounded and the sick; the role of the International Committee of the Red Cross; and key decisions of international bodies finding criminal responsibility for humanitarian law violations.
