Research handbook on human rights and humanitarian law
Cheltenham ; Northampton : E. Elgar, 2013
This contribution addresses the issue of the co-application of human rights law and the law of occupation through the lens of three specific themes. First it asks the question whether the implementation of human rights law can be used as a justification for the occupying power's "transformative" agenda. Second, it analyzes the role of human rights law in situations of prolonged occupation as an extension of the occupying power's authority in occupied territory. Finally it addresses the issue of human rights and the use of force in occupied territory.
