Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2014
This short opening chapter seeks to provide an introduction to some of the main issues canvassed by the volume. Towards this end, it begins by setting out the factual and legal context within which the contemporary appeal of exploring and charting the interaction between IRL and IHL has emerged. It then turns to consider why the issue of interaction between these two legal regimes is important and how the relationship might be configured; various important points of interaction cross-cutting the chapters contribute to the volume are highlighted for the benefit of the reader.
