Humanitarian Law of Armed Conflict (21403). 2 units. The aim of this course is to explore the potential and limits of the law governing the conduct of hostilities. We will examine the evolution of the different treaty regimes and their contemporary challenges, in particular in asymmetric and remote warfare, as well as their interface with international human rights law. We will focus on specific questions such as the right to participate in hostilities, the choice of weapons (including automated weapons), the distinction between combatants and civilians, the treatment of detainees and POWs, and the principles of military occupation. We will also look at the modalities for enforcing this law and in particular assess the effectiveness of war crimes trials as one of the modalities. Scheduled examination (web). E. Benvenisti.
