About the Authors
  • The laws governing humanitarian action stand at the intersection of several fields of international law, regional agreements, soft law and domestic law. Through in-depth case studies and analyses, expert scholars and practitioners come together to offer interdisciplinary approaches which include contributions from legal policy, international relations and philosophical perspectives. Providing invaluable overviews and insights, this collection of essays sheds light on the subject and makes sense of the various elements involved to elucidate the foundations of law and policy of humanitarian action.

    • Covers a broad range of issues from international humanitarian law and human rights law
    • Features case studies of regional and domestic law and policy making, to shed light on patterns and common pitfalls in the shaping of the international law governing humanitarian action
    • Explores the influence of the soft-law developed by non-governmental actors and how this contributes to a fragmentation of international law
