If war is a timeless reality of mankind, the ways and means whereby it is conducted have nonetheless evolved over time due to new technologies and innovative military strategies. For the most part, however, they have not challenged the ethical rules of warfare. The rapid rise in the use of automated weapons, the growing popularity of remotely controlled weapons, the development in soldiers’ enhancement technologies, of hybrid warfare and the impact of gender equality are all posing tremendous moral challenges affecting the traditional warrior ethos, the justification of killing and criminal responsibility. This begs the question: to what degree are the ways and means of modern warfare keeping pace with the current technological evolutions and societal values? Based upon a selection of presentations made at the 2022 annual conference of the International Society for Military Ethics in Europe (Euroisme), this book contains a variety of reflections on this question.
This book brings together prominent scholars in the fields of international cultural heritage law and heritage studies to scrutinise the various branches of international law and governance dealing with heritage destruction from human rights perspectives, both in times of armed conflict as well as in peace. Importantly, it also examines cases of heritage destruction that may not be intentional, but rather the consequence of large-scale infrastructural development or resource extraction. Chapters deal with high profile cases from Europe, North Africa, The Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, with a substantial afterword on heritage destruction in Ukraine.

The series is a venue for books on European immigration and asylum law and policies where academics, policy makers, law practitioners and others look to find detailed analysis of this dynamic field. Works in the series will start from a European perspective. The increased co-operation within the European Union and the Council of Europe on matters related to immigration and asylum requires the publication of theoretical and empirical research. The series will contribute to well-informed policy debates by analyzing and interpreting the evolving European legislation and its effects on national law and policies. The series brings together the various stakeholders in these policy debates: the legal profession, researchers, employers, trade unions, human rights and other civil society organizations.

Judicial and quasi-judicial institutions play an increasingly important interpretative role in bringing international human rights law to life and shaping its contours. Any study of contemporary international human rights law must therefore look beyond a mere textual analysis of codified norms. Only through critical analysis of the human rights decision-making process can the breadth and effectiveness of the protection afforded be fruitfully gauged. Such analysis is urgently needed in a multi-polar, international community where questions concerning the function and adequacy of human rights law are routinely raised. The International Human Rights Law in Practice Series meets this need by studying the practice of international and regional institutions in the field of human rights. Through the publication of rigorous scholarship in the form of peer-reviewed monographs, commentaries and documentary collections, the Series aims to disseminate specialized research, foster debate on topical human rights issues, and contribute to the training of human rights lawyers.
