In three distinct volumes the editors bring together a distinguished group of contributors whose essays chart the history, practice, and future of international humanitarian law. At a time when the war crimes of recent decades are being examined in the International Criminal Tribunals for Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and a new International Criminal Court is being created as a permanent venue to try such crimes, the role of international humanitarian law is seminal to the functioning of such attempts to establish a just world order.



The intent of these volumes is to help to inform where humanitarian law had its origins, how it has been shaped by world events, and why it can be employed to serve the future. The other volumes in this set are International Humanitarian Law: Origins and International Humanitarian Law: Prospects

Challenges Ahead
The collection of essays is entitled `Challenges Ahead'. An ambitious title, but an appropriate one; for the contributors, as the 21st century draws near, ask themselves a number of basic questions about the future of the law in a world undergoing such profound changes. Their reflections will certainly give both cause for hope and reason to fear.
This Liber Amicorum dedicated to Professor Frits Kalshoven, is written by specialists who for many years have given their best to the development and promotion of humanitarian law. It will make a significant contribution to the understanding of international humanitarian law.
Commissioned by UNESCO from the Henry Dunant Institute, this volume of essays lays the foundation for an international programme for the teaching of international humanitarian law within the framework of UNESCO's plan for the development of the teaching of human rights. Parts I and II deal with the development of humanitarian ideas and law within different schools of thought and cultural traditions; Part III with the law of armed conflict and Part IV with the application of international humanitarian law.
It is hoped that the publication of this volume, which, in its original French edition, coincided with the 40th Anniversary of UNESCO and the International Year of Peace proclaimed in 1986 by the UN General Assembly, will reinforce the determination of the international community to achieve the aim of the founders of UNESCO, namely to construct the defences of peace in the minds of men.
The Case of Finland
This book deals with the application and implementation of international humanitarian law applied to armed conflicts, as seen from the viewpoint of one particular country: Finland. It provides interesting, new information on the application of humanitarian law in the Finnish civil war (1918) and its aftermath (including Finnish interventions in Eastern Karelia) and in Finland's wars with the Soviet Union (1939-1940) and Germany (1944-1945). The application, implementation and dissemination of humanitarian law in peacetime are also analysed, including the implementation of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the Additional Protocols of 1977, as well as the role of humanitarian law in Finnish peacekeeeping operations.
The book addresses crucial issues concerning the place and role of humanitarian norms and principles in times of armed conflict as well as peace. It will be invaluable to international lawyers, the Red Cross movement, military practitioners and historians.

In Honour of Professor Juan Antonio Carrillo-Salcedo
This work represents an analysis of and a reflection on the new challenges of humanitarian law in armed conflicts. It covers the jurisprudential dimension not only of the International Court of Justice, but also all the different legal bodies, including the ad hoc tribunals created by the United Nations. It analyses the purely doctrinal dimension of general aspects such as the solutions to world disorder in this field, the relationship between jus in bello and jus ad bellum, the principles of universal and international jurisdiction, and the notion of justice and peace. More concrete aspects include the situation of foreigners and journalists in armed conflicts, terrorist acts in terms of international humanitarian law and sexual violence as a war crime.
Despite the range of themes addressed, they are all linked with the essential theme of the book, The New Challenges of Humanitarian Law in Armed Conflicts.
