This supplement is designed to provide comprehensive yet focused materials on international humanitarian law (IHL), or the law of armed conflict, for inclusion in other substantive courses, such as public international law, international criminal law, or foreign relations law. The supplement is divided into four main substantive chapters on IHL—when does IHL apply, conflict classification, and means and methods of combat—with an emphasis on how these concepts would arise in a legal proceeding, such as a war crimes prosecution. Each chapter contains an introduction to the main IHL concepts; cases and primary source materials drawn from the jurisprudence of the international criminal tribunals; notes and questions for discussion; and a series of problems to enables students to further explore the topics at hand.
