London ; New York : Routledge, 2012
Writers hold that the Court's contribution to the relationship between the two branches of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights Law (HRL) can be expressed in a single term, namely the principle as an integral part of a strong lex specialis regime or self-contained regime. The question of the interrelation between IHL and HRL owes its credibility to the recognition given in the Corfu Channel Judgment to the principle of 'elementary considerations of humanity' around which rules of HRL and IHL as branches of the law, revolve.
