Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Challenge of Conflict: International Law Responds contains the table of contents, the foreword, the acknowledgements, and an introduction. Conflicts continue to rage around the globe. In spite of decades of efforts to address the underlying causes of such events and to prevent their occurrence their catastrophic consequences can be seen in all regions of the world. Both national and international courts have a role to play in assisting societies to re-establish conditions conducive to the maintenance of the rule of law. The book has four main themes namely, the causes and prevention of conflict, conflict resolution and peace-building, international criminal law, humanitarian law and state responsibility and the role of the United Nations, humanitarian organisations and peace-keepers in post conflict situations. It examines how international legal and political mechanisms can address the catastrophic consequences of deadly conflict in today's world.

Keywords: conflict resolution; humanitarian law; international criminal law; peace-building; state responsibility; United Nations
