This contribution looks at the traditional categories of armed conflicts - international, non-international (NIAC) and belligerent occupation - that IHL seems to regulate clearly and looks at whether they are in fact still as clear as expected. While the current challenges to the traditional classification are difficult to deal with, they appear manageable insofar. However, new developments, especially in the technological field (drones and cyber operations) are said to raise new questions that may require us to go further in our solutions.
