Lieber Series – The Harmonization Project: Improving Compliance with the Law of War in Non-International Armed Conflicts

By:

The Project on Harmonizing Standards for Armed Conflict explores the extent to which it is possible for the treaty law applicable in international armed conflicts to apply to situations characterized as “non-international armed conflicts.” The Project seeks to clarify and lift the legal standards governing such matters as the humane treatment of individuals by combining both a rule-based and state practice approach.
