Classification of armed conflicts : relevant legal concepts
International law and the classification of conflicts
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2012
This chapter examines the history of the distinction between international and non-international armed conflict, the consequences of the distinction and whether it still has validity. The chapter then discusses legal concepts relevant to the two categories, including the differences between a non-international conflict and other violence, extraterritorial hostilities by one State against a non-state armed group and conflicts in which multinational forces are engaged.
