About this title


This volume is the product of the Centre for Studies and Research of the Hague Academy of International Law for 2007. A total of 23 young academics and practitioners from 16 countries participated in the Centre's summer session, and all contributed to a very valuable scholarly exploration and exchange of views on a vital topic. The volume consists of the introductory reports of the two Directors of Studies (Professor D. Momtaz of the University of Teheran and Professor M.J. Matheson of George Washington Law School), together with contributions by 13 of the Centre participants that were deemed to be particularly worthy of publication, an extensive bibliography and a general index. The topic for 2007 was "Rules and Institutions of International Humanitarian Law Put to the Test of Recent Armed Conflicts." It reflects the fact that international humanitarian law has gone through a period of considerable expansion and development in the past two decades, including the conclusion of several new international humanitarian law conventions and codes of offences, the creation of a number of criminal tribunals to prosecute international humanitarian law violations, and the effort by the ICRC to produce a comprehensive elaboration of customary law in the field. But the topic also reflects the fact that this body of law has been seriously tested by the armed conflicts of recent years, which have often been vast in scope, long in duration and severe in their human consequences. These conflicts have challenged both the norms themselves and the new institutions that have been created to enforce them. Cet ouvrage est le fruit des travaux du Centre d'etude et de recherche de l'Academie de droit international de La Haye de 2007. Un total de vingt-trois jeunes enseignants et praticiens provenant de seize pays differents ont participe a la session d'ete du Centre, et tous ont contribue a une exploration scientifique et a un echange de vues d'un grand interet sur un sujet essentiel. Ce volume comporte les rapports introductifs des deux directeurs d'etudes, ainsi que les contributions de treize participants au Centre qui ont ete jugees particulierement interessantes pour etre publiees, une bibliographie tres etendue et un index general. Le sujet choisi pour 2007 a ete Les regles et les institutions du droit international humanitaire a l'epreuve des conflits armes recents . Ce choix reflete le fait que le droit international humanitaire a connu une periode d'expansion et de developpements importants au cours des deux dernieres decennies, y compris la conclusion de plusieurs nouvelles conventions et codes penaux en cette matiere, la creation d'un certain nombre de juridictions penales pour la repression des violations du droit international humanitaire, et les efforts du CICR en vue de circonscrire le droit coutumier dans ce domaine. Mais le choix de ce sujet reflete egalement le fait que ce corpus de droit a ete serieusement mis a l'epreuve par les recents conflits armes, lesquels ont souvent ete vastes dans leur etendue, longs dans leur duree, et severes dans leurs consequences humaines. Ces conflits ont mis au defi a la fois les normes ellesmemes et les nouvelles institutions creees pour les sanctionner. Originally published as Colloques / Workshops - Law Books of the Academy, Volume 30.
