Cyberspace and international humanitarian law : the Chinese approach
Asia-Pacific perspectives on international humanitarian law
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2020
This chapter analyses China’s attitude to cyberspace and international humanitarian law (IHL). It starts with a discussion of China’s overall approach to cyberspace and the role of international law in it. Then next section analyses more specifically China’s attitude to the applicability of IHL in cyberspace. Finally, the chapter looks at the ‘people’s war’ tradition of the Chinese military and China’s recently adopted national strategy of civil-military integration (CMI), and their possible implications on IHL related issues.
