(p.359) 12 Conclusions
The Accountability of Armed Groups under Human Rights Law

Katharine Fortin

Oxford University Press

Chapter 12 contains the conclusions of the study. It brings together arguments from previous chapters showing how they interact to explain how and when armed groups can most legitimately be held bound by human rights law. In doing so, it draws conclusions on the added value of human rights law vis-à-vis international humanitarian law and the legal personality of armed groups under international human rights law. The chapter also contains practical recommendations for accountability mechanisms on how best they can develop a future jurisprudence on the topic. In its concluding remarks, it puts forward the view that there is value in pursuing parallel accountability processes (e.g. Geneva Call), in efforts to secure the accountability of armed groups under international law.
