(p.105) 4 De-internationalization
Internationalized Armed Conflicts in International Law

Kubo Mačák

Oxford University Press

wThis chapter contrasts the mechanism of internationalization of armed conflicts with the reverse process of de-internationalization. It argues that de-internationalization is not simply a matter of the conflict ‘losing’ its international character. Instead, for a conflict to be de-internationalized, it must fulfil the independent criteria for the existence of a non-international armed conflict, while maintaining the identity of the conflict parties and the continuity of the hostilities in question. The chapter highlights that not all modalities of internationalization have a corresponding modality of de-internationalization available in law. However, it interprets this as a strength rather than as a flaw of the existing legal framework.

Keywords:   armed conflict, conflict continuity, conflict parties, conflict qualification, de-internationalization, internalization, international armed conflict, internationalization, non-international armed conflict, regime change
