Accountability for Violations of International Humanitarian Law considers the various issues emanating from present-day breaches of norms of international humanitarian law (IHL) and at how impunity for such breaches can be tackled. ,/P.

This book is particularly concerned with the interplay between the rules governing accountability for violations of IHL and those of other areas of law, including international criminal law, human rights law, arms control law, general principles of international law, national constitutional law and national criminal law in terms of military discipline.

Experts in the field come together in this volume to honour Timothy McCormack, Professor of International Law at the University of Melbourne and a world renowned expert on international humanitarian law. Through a careful examination of the different aspects and challenges arising from determining accountability for IHL violations the book explores the systemic connections between various areas of law in the military context, especially in light of the intense interest in ‘fragmentation’ and ‘normative pluralism’ in current international law scholarship.
