This handbook offers an important amount of legal analysis on the interplay between international human rights law (IHRL) and international humanitarian law (IHL) in situations of violence in conflict areas across the world.
The first part of this book gives an overview of academic, military, judicial and humanitarian perspectives on the relationship between IHRL an IHL. In a second part, the reader will find some contemporary issues in legal practice.
The contributors, who are leading scholars in the field, share their perspectives on controversial and crucial topics. I find that this book fits our collections because it deals with a most relevant contemporary legal problem, in theory and practice.
