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: Challenges

Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I hope the third volume of the set (International Humanitarian Law: Prospects)... will be as intellectually engaging as the first two volumes. I highly recommend that all libraries with a focus on international humanitarian law, and more broadly on international law, purchase the set.
