In this paper, the author examines the normative framework in coalition operations with respect to the concept of targeting. He considers the complexity of the legal framework, including the mandate and the interplay between international human rights law and the law of armed conflict. The author then considers the implications of the mandate and the use of force used pursuant to it for the applicability of the jus in bello laws regulating the conduct of hostilities. In the second half of the paper, the author examines some legal interoperability problems by reference to the jus in bello laws of targeting, demonstrating the complexity of the targeting decision making process. Finally, he considers the issue of accountability of coalition commanders under the doctrine of command responsibility.
