(p.69) 3 Measures Taken Outside the Self-Defence Framework
Extraterritorial Use of Force Against Non-State Actors

Noam Lubell

Oxford University Press

This chapter questions whether extraterritorial use of force against non-state actors might, in certain conditions, not be a breach of international law, even if taken outside the framework of self-defence. The concepts of countermeasures, necessity, hot pursuit, and piracy are examined. In addition, there is an analysis of the possibility of alternative paradigms or interpretations that might be claimed to allow for use of force other than in self-defence, such as ‘extraterritorial law enforcement’.

Keywords:   countermeasures, necessity, hot pursuit, piracy, self-defence, use of force, abduction
