Asia-Pacific states and the development of international humanitarian law
Asia-Pacific perspectives on international humanitarian law
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2020
This chapter considers the development of international humanitarian law (IHL) by States from the Asia-Pacific region. Following the approach used throughout this volume, the Asia-Pacific region is understood as comprising East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. The Asia-Pacific region is thus a broad one and there is no single ‘Asia-Pacific contribution’ to IHL. Rather, there are different, numerous, multi-faceted contributions from individual States of the region.
