International Humanitarian Assistance: Disaster Relief Actions in International Law and Organizations
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1985 M03 18 - 244 pages
The underlying rationale for the international humanitarian law of war is the protection of individuals & victims of war. This book is a contribution to the study of human rights in general & humanitarian law in particular. It contains detailed information & analysis of the law & practice relating to international armed conflicts involving irregular combatants. The discussion focuses on the most controversial provisions of Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions: the classification of wars of national liberation, the treatment of guerrillas & mercenaries upon capture, reprisals, & the question of supervision & implementation in such conflicts. The manuscript on which this book was based was awarded the 1991 Paul Reuter Prize by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
