Chapter 7: International and non-international armed conflicts

Marco Sassòli



IHL rules applicable to IACs and NIACs are different but increasingly similar. Chapter 8 will present the substantive protective regimes of IHL by examining the more detailed IHL of IACs, and it will also mention the extent to which those regimes also apply to NIACs. The present chapter discusses why and to what extent IHL of IACs and IHL of NIACs are different or similar as well as where the rules applicable to NIACs can be found. It also addresses some controversies specific to IHL of NIACs.
