The International Law Association established a Study Group on the Conduct of Hostilities in the 21st Century (SG) in 2011. Discussions during the first meetings led the SG to focus attention on the legal challenges within international humanitarian law (IHL) relating to the conduct of hostilities in modern warfare. Three working groups were established to study the following issues: the military objective under IHL, precautions in attack and proportionality under IHL. The final report seeks to bring clarification of applicable rules for these selected issues.
