About this item

Margalit explores the duty to investigate state-caused civilian casualties during armed conflict and belligerent occupation. Various challenges are encountered by states involved in contemporary armed conflicts, and military operations are increasingly taking place in urban areas, often with non-state armed groups operating from a civilian environment. The challenges involved in fighting in populated areas and dealing with civilian casualties are not merely operational, they are also legal. In addition, the sensitivity to civilian casualties is high and the demand for accountability is prominent. In this context, the book seeks to address the state response to the challenge of civilian casualties, i.e., to explore the duty to investigate those incidents in which the use of force by its armed forces caused civilian loss. While formally international law is created by states, other actors are involved and exerting considerable influence in development its norms.
