Terrorism and the laws of multidimensional warfare
Counterinsurgency law : new directions in asymmetric warfare
Oxford [etc.] : Oxford University Press, 2013
Revisiting the international humanitarian law (IHL) problems that accompany conflicts with nonstate actors, this chapter points out that the protections for civilians under IHL are exploited by insurgents and terrorist, where military commanders may thus be compromised in conducting their operations. In response, the author proposes a new international legal framework, "multidimensional warfare", where he defines four categories of actors involved in warfare, each of which has a different status in the conflict.
