NZDF Law of Armed Conflict manual

The updated Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC) manual, prepared by the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), has recently been published and is now available. 

The manual is designed for use by the NZDF, and provides the basis for the content of all NZDF LOAC training. It prescribes orders implementing New Zealand’s LOAC obligations, and provides explanations of and guidance on the rights and obligations of NZDF members under LOAC, including in the maritime, land and air environments. 

The manual is promulgated for use by NZDF members, and is administered by the Directorate of Legal Services, NZDF Headquarters, Wellington.
