The Oxford handbook of international law in armed conflict
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014
The quantitative development of norms applicable to internal armed conflicts was confirmed in the recent ICRC Study on Customary International Humanitarian Law (2005), that shows that among the 161 rules contained in the study, at least 137 (and perhaps even 144 rules) are applicable to both non-international and international armed conflicts. This chapter briefly examines the variety and complexity of IHL rules applicable to non-international armed conflicts (NIACs), and then turn to the criteria for identifying the existence of a non-international armed conflict.
