Humanitarian Law in Action within Africa

Jennifer Moore

  • Examines humanitarian law in action in three African states currently emerging from periods of civil war in a manner that offers guidance to other nations emerging from armed conflict in diverse settings throughout the world.
  • Sets forth the "rules" of international law, starting with an overview of public international law and then discussing four specialized areas of international law that are most inherently responsive to the armed conflict.
  • Describes visionary aspects of international humanitarian law, and considers which goals are most worthy and capable of implementation.
  • Sets forth important arenas within which international norms respond to armed conflict and systemic repression, including international and domestic criminal prosecutions against individuals, humanitarian interventions and peacekeeping operations, human rights education and advocacy, and social healing efforts.
