Abstract

Muggleton on the Law of Non-International Armed Conflict examines the application of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in situations of non-international armed conflict. The book commences with a discussion of the threshold of application of humanitarian law, and the rules and principles that govern the conduct of parties to a non-international conflict. It then turns to the relevance of human rights law in armed conflict and the interaction of this body of law with humanitarian law. The two final chapters consider in detail two issues for which this interaction has the most profound implications, namely the use of lethal force and detention.
