International humanitarian law: answers to your questions

01-01-2004 Publication Ref. 0703

Order item

This brochure is an ideal introduction to international humanitarian law. It explores how even in war there are limits: limits on the conduct of warfare and limits on the behaviour of combatants. Its colourful design and revised content, which includes a new chapter on what IHL says about terrorism, make it accessible to all readers interested in both the origins and the modern-day application of the law.
