This case study has been conducted as part of the research project on armed non-state actors' (ANSAs') practice and interpretation of international humanitarian law (IHL), led by the Geneva Academy of IHL and Human Rights and Geneva Call, in collaboration with the American University in Cairo and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC). The research project aims to advance understanding of ANSAs' perspectives and behaviour, enhance strategies to promote their compliance with IHL as well as inform future international law-making processes. This case study assesses the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia-Ejército del Pueblo's (FARC-EP) practice and interpretation in relation to a selection of IHL rules. Compiling and analysing the FARC-EP's views enables an understanding of how this ANSA perceived international law, the norms that enjoyed greater acceptance and those that were disputed. This case study responds to several inquiries, notably why the FARC-EP chose to express its views through specific commitments and the references contained therein, and how its internal dynamics and policies evolved throughout the conflict.
