Internationalized Armed Conflicts in International Law

Kubo Macak


This book examines and analyses the concept, the process, and the consequences of conflict internationalization from the perspective of international law. In a world defined by the twin forces of globalization and fragmentation, very few armed conflicts remain isolated from foreign involvement and confined to the territory of one state.

Keywords: belligerent occupation, combatant status, conflict qualification, de-internationalization, international armed conflict, international humanitarian law, international law, internationalization, law of armed conflict, non-international armed conflict
