This book addresses the relationship of human rights to armed conflict in three distinct sections.

Section 1 examines the tensions and complementarities between protection of human rights and resolution of conflict. This involves consideration of the competing political demands in play and of the challenges posed by internal armed conflict and non-state armed groups, where international law has little direct effect.

Section 2 considers the scope and effects of human rights violations in a number of contemporary armed conflicts, such as the 'Global War on Terror', and the conflicts in Sierra Leone, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda.

Section 3 examines the legal and institutional accountability mechanisms that have been developed in the wake of armed conflict to punish violations of human rights law and international humanitarian law. It concludes with a discussion of continuing and emergent trends and challenges.

War, Conflict and Human Rights will be essential reading for advanced students of war, armed conflict and human rights, and international humanitarian law, and highly recommended for students of conflict analysis, prevention, resolution, post-conflict peacebuilding, international humanitarian law and international security.
