The right to life under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights
Oisterwijk : Wolf Legal Publisher, 2017
The thought behind the topic "When is an act of war lawful ?" is to explore the formulation in Article 15 § 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights that "no derogation from Article 2, except in in respect of deaths resulting from lawful acts of war ... shall be made under [Article 15]". This chapter proposes to touch upon this, but also to use this as a touchstone for some more general comments.
