Establishing the direct responsibility of non-state armed groups for violations of international norms : issues of attribution
Responsibilities of the non-state actor in armed conflict and the market place : theoretical considerations and empirical findings
Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2015
This chapter focuses on attribution of non-State armed group conduct from an empirical perspective. Despite the absence of a formal international judicial forum with jurisdiction over non-State actors, many international organisations as well as NGOs have put in place "monitoring" mechanisms that address the conduct of non-State actors. In the context of this chapter, the work of three different types of mechanisms are explored: the UN Commission of Inquiry and Fact-Finding missions, the reports on the monitoring of the Geneva Call Deed of Commitment, and the UN Security Council work on children in armed conflict.
