Non-Traditional Models of Armed Conflict

Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses the question of whether the reference to a transnational ‘war on terror’ is merely rhetoric or in fact covers a situation which can be defined as armed conflict. This is followed by an analysis of whether non-traditional situations demonstrate a need to consider new categories of armed conflict. The chapter also examines the source and scope of the applicable rules of humanitarian law for armed conflicts that defy easy categorisation.

Keywords: armed conflict; terrorism; war on terror; transnational; Al-Qaida; humanitarian law
