New Book by Marco Sassòli

The new book is called International Humanitarian Law: Rules, Controversies, and Solutions to Problems Arising in Warfare.

Part of the Edward Elgar ‘Principles of International Law’ series, Professor Sassòli’s book is practically oriented, and examines when IHL applies; its substantive rules; the maintenance of respect for IHL; and the IAC/NIAC distinction.

The Director of the APCML, Professor Bruce Oswald believes that:

“This book should be read by anyone teaching international humanitarian law. Its use in class will enliven discussion and will assist students to develop a better understanding of how to think about, and use, IHL. Much of Professor Sassòli’s analysis of the controversies that exist in warfare will assist researchers to think more deeply about the interpretation and application of IHL.”
