The Oxford handbook of international law in armed conflict
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014
This chapter will discuss what is encompassed by the term ‘armed forces’ and who are entitled to be called members of the armed forces. It will also explore the role of human rights law from the standpoint of members of the armed forces and others who take an active part in hostilities. How a state, or an organized armed group, treats its own members in the light of this law is a variant on this theme and also requires discussion.
