How International Humanitarian Law Develops

This Review edition looks at a fundamental question: instead of asking “what” a given IHL norm stipulates, the focus here is how these norms came to exist; respectively in what format (treaty, custom or non-binding norms) they are expressed by various relevant actors (including States, but also non-state armed groups and courts). Through a wide variety of contributions, the “how” question is used to assess the past, present and future of IHL.
