Comment : perspectives on courts established by armed opposition groups
Inducing compliance with international humanitarian law : lessons from the African Great Lakes Region
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2015
In this chapter Dieter Fleck discusses the main proposition of Jan Willms' chapter that "if the leadership of an armed group is genuinely willing to enforce humanitarian law, courts of that armed group have a relatively high potential to be a successful tool for inducing compliance". He proposes to further evaluate whether and under what conditions this potential could be convincingly used beyond the rather few armed conflicts in which such trials happened to take place and he discusses other means for armed opposition groups to improve respect for international humanitarian law.
