Chapter Summary

This section of the book Political Violence and the International Community: Developments in International Law and Policy contains a list of reference books and material. Civil war has become the dominant type of war in number and severity. It has caused humanitarian devastation on a vast scale, as well as serious disruption of regional and international peace and security. Since the end of World War II and particularly in the last decade, states, regional organizations, and the United Nations have become increasingly involved in situations of civil conflicts and coups d'état. They condemn them, call on parties to cease fighting and to resolve their disputes by peaceful means, and frequently impose sanctions or intervene forcefully.

Keywords: civil conflicts; humanitarian devastation; political violence
