The Law of Command Responsibility

Guénaël Mettraux

  • The only comprehensive account of the doctrine of command responsibility which makes it of unique value to scholars
  • The focus on existing law makes it equally valuable to practitioners
  • The doctrine of command responsibility applies to any military or civilian commander, as well as to terrorists and to military contractors, so it could be used extensively in relation to the Iraq War and the "War on Terror"
