Inducing compliance with international humanitarian law : lessons from the African Great Lakes Region
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2015
In this contribution Faustin Zacharie Ntoubandi first considers whether the African Union's human rights bodies have followed the trend that consists in incidentally enforcing international humanitarian law while discharging their human rights functions. He then briefly examines a few difficulties inherent in the enforcement of international humanitarian law by the African Union's human rights organs, before concluding with a short personal note on a more appropriate approach which the competent African Union organs may adopt in addressing issues that concern international humanitarian law.
