The Gaza freedom flotilla : politicizing maritime law in asymmetric contexts
Counterinsurgency law : new directions in asymmetric warfare
Oxford [etc.] : Oxford University Press, 2013
This chapter explores the Gaza flotilla incident in 2010 to illustrate the ways in which asymmetric warfare challenges traditional international humanitarian law. It explores the politicization of the incident, and shows how the legal and policy shortcomings of postmodern warfare are especially attenuated when conflicts take place in a maritime environment.
