The Practical Guide to Humanitarian Law

The Practical Guide to Humanitarian Law handbook analyses how this has evolved over time in the face of new challenges and changes in how conflicts and wars happen. The central concerns of the handbook include the war on terror, new forms of armed conflict and humanitarian action, the emergence of international criminal justice, and the reshaping of fundamental rules and consensus in a multipolar world.
