The Role of National Courts in Applying International Humanitarian Law

Sharon Weill

  • Evaluates how domestic courts have interpreted and applied international humanitarian law, and shows how their interpretations can differ
  • Establishes a methodology to critically assess the actions of domestic courts on a scale from acting as apologists for the use of force to actively promoting and enhancing international humanitarian law
  • Provides a detailed analysis of several key jurisdictions as case studies: the UK, US, Canada, Italy, Israel, and Serbia, and investigates how their rulings demonstrate the approach taken by each court
