Occasional Paper Series

Nov 2004 - Dec 2006

The Occasional Papers Series of the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research was a periodical publication on current important topical issues in the field of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). Each essay focuses on a specific IHL issue, defines and reviews the relevant aspects of the problem, sets it in the context of existing literature on the topic providing a summary of main positions and arguments, and draws conclusions that would inform practical work. The aim of the series was a careful exploration of the facts and issues, and an insightful, forward-looking analysis will help to advance current difficult IHL issues - by clarifying legal and conceptual issues, encouraging solid thinking about international humanitarian law, and to strengthen practical policy work.
