International humanitarian law has been perceived till now as encompassing only judicial cases concerning refugee protection or war crimes prosecutions, particularly in domestic fora. Yet, the last decade has witnessed a revolution in the way judicial bodies--international and domestic alike--are ready to tackle with complex security issues pertaining to the laws of war. The present volume follows the international and domestic courts' jurisprudential evolution as they tackle with issues like the classification of armed conflicts, direct participation in hostilities and the nexus between international humanitarian law and human rights law. Projecting the field's jurisprudential evolution in the future, the volume examines the role of international humanitarian law also in the realms of quasi-judicial bodies.
