About the Authors
  • There is considerable writing on the laws designed to regulate war, but most of this material is devoted to international wars between different states. Lindsay Moir examines the laws which exist to protect civilians caught up in armed conflicts within a single state. This book traces the development of international law from the nineteenth century, up to events arising from the conflicts in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. It demonstrates how human rights can offer protection during armed conflict and how effectively (and by whom) the relevant rules can be enforced.

    • Clearly structured and written in easily accessible language
    • Provides a detailed analysis of the entire subject area (development, scope, content and application/implementation), whereas other books tend to treat the area briefly, as part of the general laws of armed conflict; follows both humanitarian law and human rights perspectives
    • Discusses recent developments in the law from the UN criminal tribunals
