(p.25) 1 The Possibility of Self-Defence Against Non-State Actors
Extraterritorial Use of Force Against Non-State Actors

Noam Lubell

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the question of whether self-defence as understood in international law, encompasses the possibility of using extraterritorial force against armed groups abroad. It examines the prohibition on the use of force, and whether the concept of ‘armed attack’ as appears in the rules of self-defence, includes attacks by non-state actors. The chapter also analyses the impact on this issue caused by the potential links between the non-state actor and the state in which the group is located.

Keywords:   self-defence, use of force, armed attack, non-state actor, attribution, state responsibility
