(p.43) 2 The Parameters of Self-Defence
Extraterritorial Use of Force Against Non-State Actors

Noam Lubell

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the conditions and rules attached to the exercise of self-defence, with particular reference to circumstances involving non-state actors. The requirement of necessity is shown to have added importance in measures against non-state actors. Also examined are the question of a threshold for an attack to be considered an armed attack triggering self-defence, and the concept of accumulation of attacks. The possibility of pre-emptive or anticipatory self-defence against non-state actors is analysed, as is the proportionality of self-defence.

Keywords:   self-defence, armed attack, proportionality, necessity, pre-emption, anticipatory self-defence
