Investigating violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law through an international commission of inquiry : Libya and beyond
Investigating operational incidents in a military context : law, justice, politics
Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2015
This chapter discusses the role of International Commissions of Inquiry (ICOI) in investigating human rights and humanitarian law violations and uses the example of the International Commission of Inquiry for Libya to highlight some of the legal and methodological challenges which arise in conducting such investigations. The discussion deliberately encompasses violations of both human rights and humanitarian law, given the application of both sets of law in armed conflict and the potential dual characterization of many factual scenarios.
