22 November 2016 Ellen Policinski

Emily Crawford's 2015 book, Identifying the Enemy: Civilian Participation in Armed Conflict, is an examination of civilian involvement in armed conflict, with a focus on the development of international humanitarian law (IHL) relating to civilians' direct participation in conflict. It puts the evolution of the law in the broader historical context from the birth of modern IHL to drone targeting and cyber-warfare.
