Detention of non-state actors engaged in hostilities : the future law
Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2016
Bilbliographie : p. 292-295
Of all the instrurments of power that may be employed to further national interests, none yields collateral consequences that are more difficult to predict than the unleashing of military force. And with respect to the past decade's use of that instrument, no consequence has engendered more debate, confusion or passion than U.S. detention policy. This chapter attempts to clarify the reasons for the controversy surrounding the policy - explaining it primarily as a function of the nature of 21st century warfare as opposed to competing political or ideological perspectives as many claim. It then proffers a vision for moving past the controversy.
