Publication of ‘The Oxford Guide to International Humanitarian Law’

Apr 14, 2020

We are pleased to announce that The Oxford Guide to International Humanitarian Law, edited by ELAC Co-Director Dapo Akande and Professor Ben Saul (University of Sidney) has been published by Oxford University Press (OUP).

It provides a practical yet sophisticated overview of this important area of law. Written by a stellar line up of contributors, drawn from those who not only have extensive practical experience but who are also regarded as leading scholars of the subject, the book offers a comprehensive and authoritative exposition of the field. The Guide provides professionals and advanced students with information and analysis of sufficient depth to enable them to perform their tasks with understanding and confidence. Each chapter illuminates how the law applies in practice, but does not shy away from the important conceptual issues that underpin how the law has developed. It will serve as a first port of call and a regular reference work for those interested in international humanitarian law.
