Over the past several years, International Humanitarian Law has moved from the margins to the forefront of international attention. Wars and the laws of armed conflict have become the legitimate concern of all serious scholars of international law. The Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law is a timely response to the recent explosion of academic interest in international humanitarian law. It provides a truly international forum for high-quality, peer-reviewed articles, commentaries on current developments, reports on state practice and documentation that have international humanitarian law as their focal point. The cosmopolitan character of the Yearbook is ensured by its international board of editors, drawn from outstanding experts in the field, as well as by its global network of correspondents, reporting on state practice. All aspects of international law applicable during international and internal armed conflicts are covered, in addition to interesting and significant developments in related fields, such as international criminal law, human rights law, disarmament law and refugee law.;Distinguished by its topicality and contemporary relevance, the Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law bridges the gap between theory and practice and serves as a useful reference tool for scholars, practitioners, military personnel, civil servants, diplomats, human rights workers and students. Features: The Yearbook features long, in-depth articles and shorter contributions in its Articles and Current Developments sections. All articles and current developments are peer-reviewed, and the emphasis is on contemporary developments of pressing importance. Uniquely, the Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law also includes Correspondents' Reports, a detailed guide to state practice concerning International Humanitarian Law, compiled from information gathered by the Yearbook's worldwide network of correspondents. Containing information and expert commentaries on legal developments concerning international humanitarian law for an-ever increasing number of states, Correspondents' Reports is the world's only systematic review of state practice in the field of humanitarian law. In addition, the Yearbook offers an extensive section of documents, grouped according to subject.;As from the second Volume (1999) it also features a comprehensive bibliography of IHL publications.
