International Humanitarian Law Rights during Warfare Conflict and Peace
What happens to human rights in time of war/armed conflict, when the most basic of human rights, the right to life, can be denied legally? There are two main types of international human rights mechanisms: International Human Rights Law (IHRL), dealing with rights at all times, and International Humanitarian Law (IHL), dealing with rights during the special circumstances of war/armed conflict. This chapter looks at some of the 'rights' they bestow on people during war and some of the difficuties in realising such rights.
