About the subject matter of publication:
International Humanitarian Law which is also known as the law of armed conflict, is the law that mainly regulates the conduct of the war or in latin can be say jus in Bello. International humanitarian law is that branch of international law that proceed themselves as a shield or safeguard of armed conflict by protecting persons who are not participating in hostilities, and by restricting and regulating the means and methods of warfare available to combatants.
The fundamental moto of international humanitarian law is roused by contemplations of humanity and the alleviation of human torment, so it includes a bunch of rules, set up by treaty or custom, that tries to ensure people and property/protests that are, or might be, affected by outfitted armed conflict and restricts the privileges of parties to contention to utilize techniques and methods for fighting of their choice.
Sources of international law consistently include international agreements customary international law, general principles of nations, and case law. It characterizes the direct and duties of belligerent nations, neutral nations, and individuals engaged in warfare, in relation to each other and to protected persons, normally meaning non-soldiers. It is intended to adjust and balance humanitarian concerns and military necessity, and subjects warfare to the standard of the rule by restricting its dangerous impact and alleviating human misery.
International humanitarian law also operates on a strict division between rules applicable for international armed conflict and internal armed conflict, but this dichotomy is widely criticized. Also, the relationship between international human rights law and international humanitarian law is also play disputed among international law scholars; and further this forms part of a larger discussion on fragmentation of international law. While pluralist scholars conceive international human rights law as being distinct from international humanitarian law, proponents of the constitutionalist approach regard the latter as a subset of the former.
But in this modern era of 21st century we have seen many war, whether it is civil war, community war, or terror war; and this type of incident has always lead to certain serious violations. Also, some Genuine violations of international humanitarian law are called war crimes. International humanitarian law or jus in bello, directs the lead of powers when occupied with war or armed conflict. It is distinct from jus ad bellum which directs the lead of engaging in war or armed conflict and includes violations against harmony and peace of war and aggression. Together the jus in bello and jus ad Bellum involve the two strands of the laws of war governing all aspects of worldwide international armed conflicts. So, this book will boasts a new viewpoint, perspective, and a comprehensive policy bases mechanism that is the need of great importance of the hour.
