International humanitarian law

 

Crimes of War Project -- A collaboration of journalists, lawyers, and scholars that seeks to raise awareness of the laws of war and of the human consequences when armed conflict becomes entrenched. The goal of the Project is to translate the often dry, dense and arcane language of international humanitarian law so that it will have meaning and immediacy for news editors, reporters, policy makers, students and the general public. The Crimes of War Web Magazine is posted every two months. Each issue consists of several articles organized around an overarching theme, such as a current or past conflict, or a groundbreaking development in international humanitarian law. www.crimesofwar.org
