The Oxford handbook of international law in armed conflict
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014
After explaining six reasons why the law of armed conflict is one of the branches of public international law that has been the most intensely codified through treaties, this chapter analyzes: the relationship between treaty law and customary law; problems with ratification of IHL treaties, reservations to IHL treaties, legal relationship between IHL treaties, interpretation of IHL treaties, special agreements, denunciation of IHL treaties and finally, the legal effect of breach of an IHL treaty.
