Collective punishments under international humanitarian law : an analysis of the 2006 war in Lebanon
Host item entries:
Pace diritti umani, Vol. 5, no. 3, settembre-dicembre 2008, p. 95-120
This article deals with the case of collective punishments and some issues closely related to it, namely the issues of collective responsibility and that of reprisals. The idea is to use the lenses of the International Humanitarian Law in order to clarify these concepts which very often lead to legal misconceptions that too easily and deliberately are used to provide political arguments and justifications. The case of the 2006 war in Lebanon will serve as a case study in order to explore the use of these tactics in the reality of the international politics and thus test some of the initial remarks. Concerning the war in Lebanon it should be noted in advance that this study will examine the situation only under the IHL (jus in bello) parameters.
