  • International law and armed non-state actors in Afghanistan

    An effective legal regime governing the actions of armed non-state actors in Afghanistan should encompass not only international humanitarian law but also international human rights law. Although the applicability of international human rights law to armed non-state actors remains highly controversial its applicability to such actors exercising control over a population is slowly becoming more accepted.
