This paper addresses the relationship between emotions and IHL, investigating whether emotions should play a more important role in the regulation of warfare. In order to answer this question, the paper discusses three main points of contact between IHL and emotions, more specifically from the perspective of the lawmakers, the fighting parties, and the victims of armed conflict. The paper concludes that an affective turn in IHL is necessary at some levels, but not desirable at others.
