In this academic but very readable work, the author tries to shed light on the contemporary meaning and legal definition of the concept of "non-international armed conflict", which was originally created to cover situations of "classical" civil wars. In this book, Haeck tries to answer the question when a certain situation can be described as being a "non-international armed conflict". He analyses the answers that have been given by the international case-law and doctrine and creates a working-definition that can be used to determine if a situation can be classified as a non-international armed conflict. Subsequently, he sheds light on the possible reasons one might have to classify something as an armed conflict - or not. To clarify this theoretical and abstract exercise, the author applies his theoretical framework to three contemporary case-studies.
