How Does Law Protect in War?

Bouvier, Antoine A.
Publication Geneva: ICRC, 2011
Edition 3rd edition
Description 3 volumes, 2580 pp and CD-Rom
Abstract Part I presents International Humanitarian Law (IHL) carefully and systematically. The important and non-controversial elements of each topic are outlined in Introductory Texts. In addition, readers are given the possibility and indeed encouraged to expand their knowledge on a given subject through references to the pertinent parts of Cases and Documents reproduced in Part II. For each topic, references to articles from the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols and to the Rules of the ICRC Study on Customary IHL are also provided. Finally, a selected bibliography facilitates further study and deeper understanding of each topic. Part II, entitled Cases and Documents, constitutes the main body of the present publication. In this Part, the reader can find all the Cases and Documents in chronological and geographical order. The nature of each Case or Document varies according to the topic: the student or scholar will thus find judgements of national and international tribunals, Security Council resolutions, document excerpts and press releases. Each case and document has been carefully edited according to the specific topic(s) of IHL referred to in Part I. The originality of this section lies in the second part of each case, entitled Discussion, where the reader is asked questions that raise issues in relation to the case at hand. Part III, contained in the CD only, provides advice and recommendations on how to teach IHL and a series of teaching outlines that may be useful for university professors who wish to introduce a course on IHL. The suggested teaching outlines are primarily for law faculties, but they also target faculties of journalism and political science. This Part ends with fourteen course outlines written by experts in IHL and two general exercises on IHL.
