Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the relationship between international humanitarian law and international human rights law from a norm conflict perspective, as the interaction between these two bodies of law is frequently a concurrent issue with that of extraterritorial application, implicating the same policy considerations. In doing so, it looks at various forms of norm conflict avoidance and resolution, and examines — and rejects — the traditional lex specialis model for explaining the relationship between these bodies of law.

Keywords: human rights; humanitarian law; armed conflict; norm conflict; lex specialis
