Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book International Humanitarian Law: Origins, Challenges, Prospects contains the table of contents, a list of contributors and a foreword. In the book, the editors bring together a distinguished group of contributors whose essays chart the history, practice, and future of international humanitarian law. At a time when the war crimes of recent decades are being examined in the International Criminal Tribunals for Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and a new International Criminal Court is being created as a permanent venue to try such crimes, the role of international humanitarian law is seminal to the functioning of such attempts to establish a just world order. The book helps to inform where humanitarian law had its origins, how it has been shaped by world events, and why it can be employed to serve the future.

Keywords: International criminal court; International criminal law; International humanitarian law
