The Use of Armed Force in Occupied Territory book cover

About the book

The book explores the international law framework governing the use of armed force in occupied territory through a rigorous analysis of the interplay between jus ad bellum, international humanitarian law, and international human rights law. Through an examination of state practice and opinio juris, treaty provisions and relevant international and domestic case law, the book offers the first comprehensive study of this topic.
