about this item

How does international law regulate non-State armed groups? The book addresses that question by exploring the possibility of subjecting armed groups to international human rights law obligations. It firstly examines the means by which armed groups may be bound by international law. It then moves on to examine those obligations in light of potential ratione personae restrictions. Finally it questions how effective the application of the law could ever be in practice. To this end, the monograph proposes a context-dependent division of responsibility between the territorial State and the armed group. This important new study will be essential reading for scholars of humanitarian and international law.
