Abstract:

"Recent armed conflicts, whether international or non-international in character, are characterized by a variety of asymmetries. These asymmetries may be over-stressed, sometimes even abused, and ultimately virtually meaningless. Still, either as such or in conjunction with other developments, they seem to challenge the law of armed conflicts or: international humanitarian law. These challenges may very well compromise the very function of that body of law, which is to mitigate as far as possible the calamities of war. Thus, the law of armed conflict may be deprived of its fundamental function as an order of necessity because its legally binding directives will increasingly be disregarded for the sake of allegedly superior values."--Back cover.
