(p.153) 5 Achieving a Universal Combatant Status
The Treatment of Combatants and Insurgents under the Law of Armed Conflict

Emily Crawford

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the policy reasons supporting the adoption of a unified regulatory approach to armed conflict, examining the potential benefits and reasons behind a harmonised approach to all participants in all armed conflicts. The chapter theorises a possible model for harmonisation of the law, examining what categories of persons this law would regulate, and which participants would not be covered by a unified law, remaining subject to other domestic and international laws.

Keywords:   direct participation, hostilities, harmonisation, armed conflict
