This document on international humanitarian law (IHL) is a selective examination of the law of armed conflict in a context most relevant to Pakistan. It was created to assist domestic stakeholders (i.e. policymakers, members of the judiciary, members of the Armed Forces, law enforcement, academics, etc.) to develop both an understanding and appreciation of IHL. The intent is to promote Pakistan's compliance with its obligations under IHL and to provide clearer guidelines for the Armed Forces and Civil Armed Forces engaged in military and law enforcement operations. This document reflects not the entirety of applicable IHL, but rather a limited selection of relevant legal principles and customary rules. As a whole, this document is intended to be a user-friendly introduction meant to build the capacity of a domestic audience. Certain provisions of domestic law were incorporated to ease apprehensions regarding the compatibility of domestic law with IHL principles.
