Research Handbook on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law: Further Reflections and Perspectives

About the eBook

Providing up-to-date discussions of both evolving and novel debates in human rights law and humanitarian law, this timely new edition of the Research Handbook on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law complements, rather than replaces, its predecessor with fresh perspectives from leading scholars on the controversial and crucial topics within these fields.

Examining the application of international law to armed conflict situations, contributors present contemporary reflections on a variety of issues that have evolved and emerged in recent years. Chapters integrate a multitude of converging and diverging perspectives on international law in armed conflict, giving voice to stakeholders from academic, humanitarian, judicial, and military backgrounds. Grounded in the results from extensive cutting-edge research on various topics pertaining to the interplay between human rights law and humanitarian law, this Research Handbook illuminates the role of international law in topics such as counterterrorism, tribunals, detention and detainee transfer, sexual and gender-based violence, and torture.

Breaking down major and recent international and domestic jurisprudence in an accessible format, this Research Handbook will prove invaluable to students and scholars of human rights and international humanitarian law. With practical examples, it will also act as a useful reference guide to practitioners and humanitarian workers in the field.
