Inaugural edition of the Asia-Pacific Journal of International Humanitarian Law

The Asia-Pacific is a complex and diverse international humanitarian law (IHL) landscape. From Nauru to Pakistan, there have and will continue to be meaningful contributions made by Asia-Pacific States, to the development and application of IHL.

To highlight these contributions and provide a unique platform for reflection and comment on IHL in and by the Asia-Pacific region, the International Committee of the Red Cross in collaboration with the University of the Philippines Law Centre Institute of International Legal Studies has published the first edition of the new yearly publication, the Asia-Pacific Journal of International Humanitarian Law (APJIHL).

With peer-reviewed scholarly articles, book reviews and analysis of significant IHL developments and events, this edition canvasses a diverse array of issues, including new technologies, the changing nature of warfare and topical challenges in holding individuals to account for IHL violations.
