Example text

This is so because the LOAC contains legal norms which regulate the dealings of states when they are at war. The LOAC thus concerns inter-state relations in a particular context. Moreover, it concerns legal inter-state relations, since it posits binding norms. Hence, it is a part of PIL, which is the legal order regulating inter-state relations. 9 H Grotius, De Jure Belli ac Pacis (Buffalo, Hein, 1995 [1625]). I N: TROD J U S A DPART B E L LIU: M M A I N UCCTI O MON PON EN TS 2 JUS AD BELLUM: MAIN COMPONENTS Learning objectives: To understand and briefly describe the law relating to the maintenance of peace.

They regulate only the questions arising out of the relationships of belligerence or neutrality. Jus ad bellum concerns the legality of the use of force under the law of peace. It does not regulate actual warfare and conduct during belligerency. It regulates the question of who may use force, when and for what ends. There is thus a neat distinction between these two areas. b) The main areas regulated by the LOAC are the means and methods of warfare, the protection of war victims (the wounded and sick, prisoners and civilians) and neutrality.

We must now understand the definitions which are given to PIL. 2 Why is the term ‘some other subjects’ included? Another definition makes this point clearer: International law is the body of rules which are legally binding on states in their intercourse with each other. These rules are primarily those which govern the relations of states, but states are not the only subjects of international law. 3 The rules of international law that envisage individuals as subjects are mainly those pertaining to human rights law and to international criminal law.
