When discussing the application of international human rights law to service personnel, commentary has tended to focus on the role of service members as duty bearers. This is understandable, particularly in light of the recent publicity given to UN peacekeepers engaging in sexual exploitation and abuse. Consequently, whilst much has been written on the legal frameworks surrounding the investigation and prosecution of service personnel alleged to have committed human rights abuses, there is less discussion surrounding service members as bearers of rights.
